THE COLLIDING PARTICLES PROJECT: HUNTING THE HIGGS


QUOTATION FROM THE "ABOUT" PAGE

"The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will look deeper into the nature of the universe than anything that has gone before, and its vast experiments are certain to change our understanding of the world around us. The scale of the engineering involved can sometimes obscure the fact that the project is designed and run by people - hundreds of teams of researchers and collaborators, all driven by the simple desire to increase our understanding of the universe we live in.

"Colliding Particles" is a series of films following just one of the teams of physicists involved in the research at the LHC. The project documents their work at the frontiers of particle physics, exploring the human stories behind the research and investigating the workings of the scientific process itself."
