The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s biggest scientific instrument. After twenty years of design and construction, collisions will start within the next few weeks, the first step on a new voyage of discovery into
the world of the incredibly small.
Dr Dave Newbold will explain why particle physics appears complex, but is actually simple — but how building the accelerator and experiments has been more challenging than you might think. He’ll take a look at how the LHC works, see how the experiments are carried out, and talk about some of the new discoveries that could be made in the coming years.
