About this video
Tara Shears takes questions from the audience following her Ri lecture on the LHC.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is the most powerful particle collider ever built and has been described as the world's biggest science experiment.
Designed to answer the unknowns in particle physics, including the reason for so little antimatter in the universe and the exact locations of dark matter and the missing Higgs particle, the LHC is capable of recreating the conditions that were in existence one fraction of a second after the Big Bang.
After revealling what has been discovered through the LHC since its first year of operation, Dr Tara Shears took questions form the Ri audience.
This event took place at the Ri on Wednesday 19 October 2011.
