Uncovering the Universe: latest news from the Large Hadron Collider

Tara Shears will share the latest findings from the Large Hadron Collider.

You may have heard of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful particle collider ever built. It is capable of creating (fleetingly) the fundamental particles which form everything in the universe. In particle physics we’ve understood much about these tiny objects, and can describe their behaviour in an incredibly successful theory. However, there are many known unknowns: where is the missing Higgs particle? Why is there so little antimatter in the universe? What is dark matter? We have built the LHC to try to find answers. So what have we found out? Tara Shears will share their latest findings.
