After explaining why pure scientific research is crucial for the advancement of humanity at all levels, David Kaplan tell us why the Higgs boson is so important to our very own existence and the survival of the entire Universe in very simple way.
Understanding the inner workings of existence is a challenge not everyone is equipped for. In my high school physics class, I learned a handful of Newtonian laws and something about a quark, and that was about it. But during Particle Fever's 120-minute runtime, I felt like a physicist.
Particle Fever follows the giant launch of the Large Hadron Collider, the massive machine with a 17-mile circumference that's home to some 10,000 scientists. This documentary follows six researchers and their journey to unravel the secrets of the universe — check out the first trailer here.
