The first speech, entitled "The Higgs Particle and the Destiny of the Universe," will be given by Harrison Prosper, Kirby W. Kemper Professor of Physics and Distinguished Research Professor at FSU on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 the Challenger Learning Center. Prosper contributed to research that led to the discovery of the Higgs Boson. :: Einstein is topic of free public lecture, 1 Jan 2005 [cached]
Prof. Harrison Prosper, a high-energy physicist, will deliver the lecture aimed at illustrating the value to science and philosophy of Einstein, the world's most well known scientific icon who died in 1955.
"We'll trace his life and science, pausing along the way to marvel at examples of scientific reasoning that are, at once, breathtakingly simple and profound," said Prosper.
The talk will begin at 6:30 in the mag lab's seminar room.The lab is located in Innovation Park at 1800 West Paul Dirac Drive.
Prosper, a native of Dominica, West Indies, has been a member of FSU's physics department since 1994.Trained at the University of Manchester (UK), Prosper has conducted research into high-energy particle physics in Britain; Grenoble, France and at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
In 1995, Prosper won distinction as being co-discoverer of the "top" quark at Fermilab, a national laboratory for physics research in Batavia, Ill.
The lecture is being sponsored by the Tallahassee Scientific Society.

Professor Prosper to discuss Higgs boson in public lecture next week
Dr. Harrison Prosper, Kirby W. Kemper Professor of Physics at FSU, was part of the crew that worked directly with data used to make the conclusion that the particle found could possibly be the Higgs boson.
He said this is the most important discovery in 60 years to High Energy Physics (HEP).
"[This is] great for FSU and a marvelous thing for me," said Prosper, who began working in the field of physics in 1960.
Dr. Prosper will also hold a public lecture on the Higgs boson next Tuesday, July 17, at 7 p.m. in the Moore Auditorium.

Recently, we were privileged to host guest speaker Harrison Prosper, professor of physics at Florida State University, who led a program titled "It's About Time"-an excellent perspective of implications from modern cosmology and particle physics. While agnostic himself, he expressed appreciation for our group's sympathetic and holistic quest.

"This is a tremendously exciting time to be involved in high-energy physics," said Harrison Prosper, Florida State's Kirby W. Kemper Professor of Physics and a Distinguished Research Professor.
Prosper offered an automotive analogy.
"If every person on Earth owned a car, and the batteries from all those cars were connected together in a series, the voltage across this enormous chain would be huge - but still only one-fiftieth of the voltage needed to increase the energy of a proton from zero to 3.5 teraelectronvolts (that is, 7 teraelectronvolts when two protons collide)," he said.
The group includes theoretical physicists Jeff Owens, Laura Reina, Takemichi Okui and Bernd Berg, and experimental physicists Todd Adams, Andrew Askew, Susan Blessing, Kurtis Johnson, Sharon Hagopian, Vasken Hagopian, Harrison Prosper and Horst Wahl.
