Searching for the Genetic Code of our Universe

2/6/2017; 56 minutes

The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson completes a powerful and comprehensive description of nature known as the standard model of particle physics. The next step is to find the new physics that underpins this model, which many physicists believe could solve mysteries first seen in astrophysical and cosmological data, such as dark matter and neutrino mixing. Joseph Incandela, UCSB Professor of Physics, gives a general overview of where things stand and what's being planned, including his own research plans to address very fundamental questions about the universe.
