The King of Fermions and the Fate of the Universe
Audience: Adults
Description: The top quark is the most massive elementary particle ever discovered. The top quark mass provides a consistency check of the Standard Model of Particle Physics, and in relation with the Higgs boson mass, controls the stability of the universe as a quantum system. In this talk, I elaborate on the above and describe the measurements of the top quark mass made using data from the highest energy proton proton collisions at the CERN laboratory in Switzerland.
