Tuesday’s Chat: magic wands, super symmetry and the Standard Model

Last Tuesday, students discovered what CP violation is, with Joel’s excellent magic wand analogy, and deepened their understanding about how developing the Standard Model theory has changed our view of the universe.

9 scientists came along to the text-based, online Chat at 3.30pm. Aspiring physicists from a school in Kent logged in and asked the questions that interested them.

Emir Muhammad was taking part in the Chat yesterday!
