Particle physics made easy: from past successes to remaining challenges

What are the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and its huge detectors used for and how do they work? How do we know that dark matter exists? Could we be at the dawn of a huge revolution in our conception of the material world that surrounds us? Join Pauline Gagnon as she explores these questions and the current ongoing research at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.
