Film Screening of “Particle Fever”

7:00pm CDT September 16, 2014

Lake Forest College presents a film screening of the documentary Particle Fever. Co-produced by alumnus Gerry Ohrstrom ’76, Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet.

As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?
