TEDxFultonStreet: James Beacham

TEDxFultonStreet - 2014

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC in 2012 was a fantastic achievement. But what's next for high-energy particle physics? The next generation of larger colliders will allow us to explore uncharted territory, but it's also possible that new, revolutionary physics could be found at existing smaller facilities using clever new ways to search. Is it possible that our we might not find anything? Yes, but the only failure would be to stop trying.
