Mysteries of Matter at the LHC
Two years ago, the Higgs Boson was discovered by the ATLAS and CMS experiments. But how precisely does it fill its role as the last missing piece in the Standard Model of particle physics?
The Large Hadron Collider will restart in 2015 with almost double the collision energy to test just that. But even then, this theory only accounts for 5% of the Universe, and does not include gravity. Can the LHC shed light on the origin of dark matter? Why is gravity so much weaker than the other forces? Dr. Pippa Wells explains how the LHC will explore these mysteries of matter.

|The Hunt for the Higgs
This is a BBC Horizon documentary presented by Jim Al-Khalili, revealing how CERN is searching for the Higgs particle and why it is so significant.
|The Higgs Boson and the Fate of the Universe
The discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider poses new challenges to our understanding of basic quantum physics.
|Cosmic Clue: Dark Matter Mystery
The universe is full of giant structures like galaxies and clusters of galaxies. What holds them together? Over the past century, many diverse observations indicate that the glue holding these objects together is the gravitational pull of an invisible, elusive substance called dark matter.
|Particle Physics: Standard Model
Professor Leonard Susskind gives a series of lectures focusing on the foundations of the Standard Model, which describes the interactions and properties of the observed particles.
