The Big Bang machine: the Large Hadron Collider at CERN

How the LHC will give us answers to some of the fundamental questions about our Universe.

What is Dark Matter? Why do particles have mass? Why is there no anti-matter? These are some of the fundamental questions that will be addressed by the Large Hadron Collider, a 27 kilometre-long accelerator which has just begun operation in a tunnel 100m beneath the Swiss-French border. This lecture will give a flavour of what it’s like to work at the European particle physics laboratory and discuss how we can use the biggest experiment in the world to solve the some of these intriguing puzzles in physics.
