In search of strange worlds in the November of Science
The Higgs particle, Einstein’s gravitational waves and parallel universes in a series of talks at the Albert Einstein Institute Hannover
Are there really parallel universes and extra dimensions? What can we learn about the dark side of the universe with gravitational waves? To what extent does the Standard Model of elementary particles need the Higgs-Boson, which was recently proven at CERN? Current research results focusing on these issues will be explored by Dr. Peter Aufmuth from the Albert Einstein Institute Hannover as part of the event "November der Wissenschaft" (November of Science)
13 November 2012, 6:00 p.m.
The search for the Higgs particle – The Standard Model of matter
What do we know about the structure of matter? Which questions are still open? And what is the current situation of the experiments at CERN?
20 November 2012, 6:00 p.m.
The search for gravitational waves – The echo of the Big Bang
The sound of the universe - how can the sound of the universe be unravelled with the help of gravitational waves?
27 November 2012, 6:00 p.m.
In search of other worlds – Exoplanets, extra dimensions, parallel universes
Is there a second Earth? Is our universe the only one? Do we live in a higher dimensional world?
