Mines hosts major International Astroparticle Physics Symposium
GOLDEN, Colo., May 2, 2008 – Colorado School of Mines will host the International Astroparticle Physics Symposium: The High Energy Frontier, May 6-8.
Mines local organizers Fred Sarazin and Lawrence Wiencke referred to astroparticles – subatomic particles traveling across our universe at velocities nearing the speed of light – as the “messengers of the high-energy universe”
The program includes plenary sessions by invited speakers summarizing the state of the art in high-energy astroparticle physics. In total, more than 75 presentations will be delivered during the symposium. A panel discussion on future observatories, including the northern Auger Observatory planned to be located in southeastern Colorado will conclude the symposium.
