Tom Giblin, Kenyon College
We find ourselves in the so-called “Golden Age” of particle physics. Ours is a time in which the largest, most sophisticated, and most expensive experiments in history are returning the most precise measurements ever. However, our “Golden Age” is starting to look tarnished; the concordance among these experiments continues to show consistency with a model of particle physics (and hence, of the Universe) that we know is wrong. In this talk I will discuss this staggering dilemma and show how our research group is making some progress in trying to confront these failures of success. I will focus on what information might still be hidden behind difficult problems that we need to actually confront.
