Theoretical physicist Peter Skands takes us on a tour of the experiments performed at The Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and most complex experiment ever built. It is located at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. What is it, and what does it do? Theoretical physicist Peter Skands will take us on a tour of the experiments performed there, and the laws of nature that they are built to push to the limit.
Some may know of CERN as the scene of the discovery of the Higgs particle in 2012, or as the birthplace of the World Wide Web. What else is happening at the Large Hadron Collider, and what are the future perspectives for our endeavour to understand the fundamental building blocks of nature?
This event was held on Tuesday 25 September at the University of Sydney.
Each month we'll send you details about upcoming events, and a selection of podcasts.
