Moving at the speed of light
Filmed 18 Sep 2012 – TEDxCopenhagen
About this talk
At CERN’s giant LHC accelerator, protons move at almost the speed of light. The protons are brought to collide in an attempt to convert the energy in their movement into new particles and phenomena. In this way we can explore the fundamental building blocks of our Universe. However, challenging the riddles of the Universe is a tough task, and there are many technical difficulties to overcome in the process. Overcoming these challenges enables spectacular discoveries, which fundamentally move our understanding of the Universe.
