Summer Abroad students probe the subatomic universe at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics lab
In 2012, physicists made headline news around the world with the discovery of the Higgs boson, a lynchpin in the standard model of particle physics, the theory describing all matter and forces in the universe. The breakthrough was long-sought confirmation of the theory explaining why some particles have mass and others do not.

After fall convocation, Wentao Cui will live his dream of attending MIT
“I was fortunate to have been taught some advanced math and physics by my family when I was quite young and found it very interesting,” he says. “Also, popular science books sparked my imagination. For as long as I can remember, I enjoyed trying to understand what the universe was made of at the most fundamental level, and tried to understand the nature of what we observed around us.”
