Event Details

Wednesday February 20, 6:30pm–8pm (Doors open 5:45) OMNIMAX Theatre


NEW: Lecture will be webcast LIVE in High Definition !   if you are interested in watching the event from the comfort of your home, please click here (opens new window):  Lyn Evans Lecture Webcast  


Overflow seating: Note that the event is SOLD OUT.  For those on the waitlist, the 200-seat Science Theatre will show a simulcast on a theatrical screen to accomodate overflow seating.  Given the liklihood of no-shows, there is a chance that some number of wait-list guests will get spaces in the OMINMAX theatre based on a first-come, first-served basis. In case of overflow, the speaker, Dr. Lyn Evans, will take questions in the Science Theatre after completion of the OMNIMAX question-and-answer session.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is history’s most powerful atom smasher, capable of recreating the conditions that existed less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. The construction of the LHC was a massive engineering challenge that spanned almost 15 years, yielding the most technologically sophisticated instrument mankind ever has created.


Join Science World and TRIUMF in welcoming Dr. Lyn Evans, project leader for the LHC construction, in his Milner Foundation Special Fundamental Physics Prize lecture. In this free event, Dr Evans will detail some of the design features and technical challenges that make the LHC such an awe-inspiring scientific instrument. He will also discuss recent results from the LHC and touch on what’s next in the world of high-energy physics. The lecture will be followed by an audience question and answer session.


Dr Evans, born in Wales in 1945, has spent his whole career in the field of high energy physics and particle accelerators. In 2012, he was awarded the Special Fundamental Physics Prize for his contribution to the discovery of the Higgs-like boson.


Tickets are free, but registration is required.
