Particle Fever: Film Screening with Special Commentary, Feb 10

Particle Fever

“Mind blowing.” – New York Times          “It plays out with all the suspense of a thriller.” – Washington Post

Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on his first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity. Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the edge of human innovation.

As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially completing our understanding of ordinary matter. After the film, join producer/physicst/co-star David Kaplan for a discussion of this far-reaching work.
