Contained within this video are excerpts from a press conference held at the University of Edinburgh on 6 July 2012, in which Professor Peter Higgs gives his response to the discovery of a particle at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland, believed to be the Higgs boson.
Also interviewed is Professor Richard Kenway, a Vice-Principal of the University and head of the UK’s High-Performance Computing Service. His interview concerns today's announcement from the University of Edinburgh that a new centre dedicated to research into theoretical physics is to be established and named in honour of Professor Higgs. £750,000 of initial funding will help attract new academic staff and students from around the world, to help Edinburgh build upon the success of Peter Higgs' work.
Scientists at CERN are confident they have found the 'God particle', but months and years of analysis lie ahead to confirm that the particle is the elusive Higgs boson. If so, physicists want to know whether it is the simplest kind of particle put forward in physicists' theories, or something more unusual - and more exciting. In other words, everything is numbered and everything is connected.
My third 3d fractal music clip for my ambient/drone/experimental project called Musicians With guns. This track will be released soon on Perso Records : http://persorecords.tumblr.com/
Stay tuned for the first Musicians With Guns LP on Entropy Records, March 2011 (pressed CD, limited series 500 copies) : http://www.entropy-records.com/
The fractal imagery was made with Mandelbulb 3d, a fantastic - and free ! - program by Jesse (PC only). More infos about Mandelbulb 3d, Jesse and 3d fractals on fractalforums : http://www.fractalforums.com/
