A digital lecture featuring Jonas Strandberg of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm. Jonas tells about his research at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), where scientists explore the smallest building blocks of matter in order to understand the structure of the universe.
Scientist at the CERN laboratory explore the smallest building blocks of matter in order to understand their role in the structure of the universe. The Higgs boson is an integral part of this, since it gives mass to other particles. How does this work, and why is it important?
Welcome to one of KTH’s open lectures, which present exciting research in popular science form.
In this lecture, Jonas Strandberg, associate professor of particle physics at KTH, explains his research at CERN and how its discoveries help us to understand how the world actually functions.
