LECTURE INFORMATION
The Large Hadron Collider: Reaching Back to the Big Bang
The world's largest particle accelerator is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), installed 100 m underground in a 27 km circular tunnel at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The LHC is truly a world-wide science facility, built by 85 countries working together on 6 continents, including about 150 researchers and students from across Canada. Together in this lecture we will explore the new discovery frontier being opened up by the LHC, probing energies an instant after the Big Bang. It may even unlock the mystery of \"Dark Matter\" in the universe. Highlights include some of the unprecedented challenges which were overcome in building the biggest science machine on earth.
