The Higgs Field and its Role in Creating Mass

We meet the Higgs field, and also consider aspects of empty space and the universe. Two demonstrations are used to model how the Higgs field gives mass to particles: sugar and ping-pong balls; and a prism and light beams.

The Experiment and Data; and What’s Next?

How do ATLAS and CMS actually "see" individual Higgs particles? Here’s an opportunity for you to join the search for Higgs particles and other things at atlas-live.cern.ch/ There are still lots of unanswered questions and puzzles about the Higgs particle, and crazy ideas abound about so-called dark matter and dark energy that fill the universe.

Giving Back During UK Breaks: Who Does that?

 

 

Drew Ritzel is just one of hundreds of UK students who have participated in an Alternative Spring Break trip — either a weekend excursion or a weeklong adventure — to volunteer.

Ritzel, a junior biology major from Dayton, Ohio, went on his first ASB trip as a freshman and since that experience, he’s been hooked.

Special Thanks to Casey Smith of Wildcat Student TV for video from the trip to Nicaragua.

Coffee Chat with Mayor Jim Gray

 

When you live in A&S Wired, you are connected to community.

And that certainly was the case when Lexington Mayor Jim Gray recently stopped by one of the monthly coffee chats to discuss the city that the students now call home, and their interaction within that community.

The mayor discussed the important relationship between UK and Lexington, especially with campus’ close proximity to downtown. He talked about the future of the Rupp Arena district, as well as how Lexington has been recognized as a top city for raising families.

The students were fully engaged as they inquired about the progress of the CentrePointe block in the middle of downtown, as well as other major plans the mayor wants to concentrate on for the future of Lexington.

Located in Keeneland Hall on UK’s north campus, A&S Wired allows first-year students to realize connectivity on all levels – from virtual to face-to-face, and from local to global. For more info visit wired.as.uky.edu
