Great Expectations: The Large Hadron Collider 2015
Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations

Tulika Bose, PhD, Assistant Professor of Physics, Boston University.
Professor Bose is the Trigger Coordinator for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). She discusses, in this November 05 recording, what she and her colleagues are anticipating in the way of new physics when the LHC starts up again in early 2015. The 2015 run of the LHC is expected to be about double (approx. 13 TeV) the energy of the 2012 particle collisions. That energy is expected to produce a whole range of surprises, and scientists expect some surprises and also new insights on familiar mysteries such as dark matter.
