The Origin of the Big Bang – Searching for the Beginning in a Sea of Particles

Tuesday, June 06, 2023, 6:30pm

Almost 14 billion years ago, our universe came into being. Like detectives, physicists are trying to combine their observations into a theory of the Big Bang. With today's knowledge, they can trace the evolution of the universe back to a few fractions of a second after the so-called Big Bang - the birth of the universe. With experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, LHC, at the world-famous CERN in Geneva, they hope to go even further into the past, and perhaps develop a theory that describes the Big Bang itself.
