"Desperate Measures (in Desperate Times)" is the title of the talk to be presented by Tom Giblin, associate professor of physics at Kenyon College.

Abstract:  We find ourselves in the so-called “Golden Age” of particle physics.  Ours is a time in which the largest, most sophisticated, and most expensive experiments in history are returning the most precise measurements ever. 

However, our “Golden Age” is starting to look tarnished; the concordance among these experiments continues to show consistency with a model of particle physics (and hence, of the Universe) that we know is wrong. 

In this talk I will discuss this staggering dilemma and show how our research group is making some progress in trying to confront these failures of success.

A reception for Professor Giblin begins at 4:10 p.m. in the Anderson Lounge, Wright Lab, second floor.
