Interview with Professor Frank Close

Frank CloseHe’s written about antimatter, neutrinos, voids and cosmic onions. But most recently Professor Frank Close, Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Exeter College, has written a fascinating book, ‘The Infinity Puzzle’, on the people behind the Higgs Boson and the Large Hadron Collider in Europe.

Luckily I had the chance to catch up with him for half an hour to chat about everything from where Physics is going to his pet cat.

So if you want to hear more about ‘out of the box’ thinking students, physicists who might be spies or whether Frank has ever suffered from Nobelitis then just go through to the interview here or you can click on the ‘Interviews’ tab at the top of the page.
