The Particle at the End of the Universe - Talk
with Sean Carroll
About this video
The Higgs and beyond...
It was the universe's most elusive particle, the linchpin for everything scientists dreamed up to explain how stuff works. It had to be found. But projects as big as CERN's Large Hadron Collider don't happen without dealing and conniving, incredible risks and occasional skullduggery.
Award-winning physicist and popular science writer Sean Carroll reveals the history-making forces of insight, rivalry, and wonder that fueled the Higgs search and how its discovery opens a door into the mind-boggling domain of dark matter and other phenomena we never predicted.
The event was chaired by science journalist, Alok Jha.
