Particle Fever

Think that particle physics isn’t for you? Think again and come and see this brilliant and visually spectacular documentary that follows six physicists as they try and unravel the mysteries of the universe. The building of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland is one of the most significant and inspiring scientific breakthroughs of our time. The project brought together 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries to construct a giant machine to recreate conditions just after the Big Bang, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. We follow the scientists as they confront the possibility that we’ve reached our limit in understanding why we exist.
