Episode 24: Understanding the Secrets of the Universe

Originally Aired April 15, 2016

Associate Dean of Science Elliott Cheu is fascinated by the rules governing the elementary particles that compose the universe. Through the UA's involvement with the world's largest elementary particle collider, the Large Hadron Collider, since almost its inception, Professor Cheu and his colleagues are helping LHC to produce data that may tell us about why the Higgs Boson weighs as much as it does, and lead to an understanding about the mysterious dark matter that inhabits nearly 25% of the Universe. Current work at the UA also is helping to explore the capabilities at the LHC so that up to 100 times more data can be collected.
