Thanks to member, Uwe Bergmann, for introducing last week's speaker, theoretical physicist, Professor Michael Peskin. Professor Peskin explained the famous Higgs particle, which has long been theorized as essential to confirming the standard model of the governing forces of the universe.  He also explained how the CERN Large Hadron Collider helped find the Higgs boson this past July.  Thanks to Professor Peskin for bringing such clarity to such an arcane topic.
