Professor Peter Higgs is to give a talk about the particle that bears his name, at a sell-out event in Edinburgh.

The celebrated scientist will join a panel discussion on the Higgs boson, a particle whose recent discovery is regarded as a milestone in modern physics.

Professor Higgs came up with a theory for the boson, which is fundamental to the laws of physics, when he was a young researcher at Edinburgh in the 1960s.

The event will be streamed live at this page at 6pm on Thursday, 20 June.

Late Breaking rather Late Reporting News

Way back in September three intrepid Knox teams braved the scorching sun and the unforgiving blue sky to navigate around John Muir Park performing team building activities and problem solving challenges. Our teams were all proud of their achievement on the day with one celebrating last place, another third and the last placing first, winning the coveted Gold Hiking Boot. Well done everyone.
