Dark matter is a mysterious type of matter that no one can see but which makes up 27% of the content of the Universe. What is dark matter? How do we know it's there? Physicists from LHC, AMS, and CAST experiments talk about what they are doing to explore the 'dark side' of the Universe.
On 4 July 2012, CERN announced the discovery of a new boson, later confirmed to be "a Higgs boson", but which one? Is it the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics or one of the five Higgs bosons associated with Supersymmetry? Theoretical physicist John Ellis joined experimental physicists to talk about Supersymmetry, also known as SUSY. What is it? Why and how does it link with the Higgs boson?
The world's largest particle accelerator, CERN's Large Hadron Collider, is preparing to run at higher energies. With collisions on hold, engineers and physicists are busy consolidating and upgrading the accelerator, the experiments and more. In this episode, researchers from the TALENT project gave us insight into their work to help upgrade the ATLAS detector.
Scientists from the CERN's LHCb Experiment explain why penguins can be found in their experiment. But these are no ordinary penguins. These are electroweak penguins, who got their name via a strange tale involving a game of darts!
Scientists from CERN's ISOLDE facility explain how the facility fulfils the old alchemical dream of changing one element into another.
