Dr. Michael Olson

At 9 am, DCA’s Distinguished Lecture Series will offer a lecture titled “Searching for New Physics at the High-Energy Frontier (Without Actually Going There),” presented by St. Norbert College lecturer Dr. Michael N. Olson. Olson will discuss the Standard Model of Particle Physics and all the questions it fails to answer. For example, what is “dark matter?” Why can’t the Standard Model predict a particle’s mass? Are the current “fundamental particles” really fundamental, or are they too made up of even smaller “fundamental” particles? In discussing these and other questions, this presentation will seek to illuminate the fascinating world of high-energy physics.

Olson’s lecture is free to the public (freewill donations accepted) and is sponsored by Dahl Law Firm and Ross Estate Planning; lodging is provided by Homestead Suites. Coffee and treats will be provided by Base Camp Coffee Shop.

DCA is located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.2728 or visit
