Making Mini Big Bangs at the Large Hadron Collider

Description
Much has been made of the discovery of the Higgs boson – the elementary particle pivotal to the Standard Model of physics – and rightly so. Yet the so-called 'God particle', hypothesised for so long and finally confirmed in 2012, is responsible for only one per cent of the mass of the visible universe. The other 99 per cent is due to the Strong Force.Professor David Evans, School of Physics and Astronomy, talks about his work at the Large Hadron Collider.
