What's the talk about?

Jon Butterworth will explore our current state of knowledge of particle physics, the so-called standard model, which was completed by the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. This gives us a map of the invisible world of subatomic physics. But what does the map reveal, what lies beyond its limits and what are the latest experiments telling us?
