The other end of a black hole

What would happen if you fell into a black hole? Would you be vaporised? Crushed into a point? Stretched into spaghetti? Or would you emerge at the other end to a new world – perhaps a new universe? Join James Beacham, particle physicist at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, as he explores what happens when the fabric of reality – physical or societal – gets twisted beyond recognition, and what this means for you, now and in the future.

James Beacham searches for answers to the biggest open questions of physics using the largest experiment ever, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He hunts for dark matter, gravitons, quantum black holes, and dark photons as a member of the ATLAS collaboration, one of the teams that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012.
