In this episode of the Inspireland podcast i was joined by world renowned particle physicist, Jon Butterworth.
Jon is a professor at University College London but is probably best known for his work on the discovery of the Higgs Bosun particle at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
Jon discusses his entry into the physics field, how becoming a Father changed the direction of his work, what it was like to discover the 'God particle,' and what's next for him now that the Higgs Bosun's existence has been proven.
Jon writes for the Guardian, has an excellent blog, makes numerous TV and documentary appearances, and recently wrote a surprisingly readable particle physics book, Smashing Physics, which describes his time and work at CERN.
