Event description
How the smallest particles can unveil the secrets of the universe

About this Event

The world and everything in it, as we all get taught at school, is made up of atoms. Digging deeper we can see atoms are made up of electrons orbiting around nuclei, the nuclei are made up of protons and neutrons which themselves are made up of quarks. This gives us the beginnings of the standard model of physics.

But there’s something else out there, something which is not in an atom but which is passing right through us all the time.

These elusive particles are called neutrinos, and in this exciting talk from Dr Katori of Kings College London we will find out how they are used to investigate the farthest reaches of the universe, and what they mean for the future of Physics!
