Dr Melissa Uchida is a particle physicist work at Imperial College London.
Whilst we know that 68% of the universe is dark energy and 27% is dark matter, we have only hints as to their nature. The matter dominated universe of which we are a part makes up the remaining 5% but even here there are many outstanding questions, such as how does it come to exist in the first place?
To understand these questions particle physicists work as a global community, inventing new technologies with benefits that reach far beyond the pursuit of knowledge. This talk gives a brief history of particle physics and describes one physicist's work in the hunt for answers.
