1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide

Viewers learn about an experiment that forces sub-atomic particles to crash into each other at the speed of light-producing, it is hoped, previously undetected particles that were present at the beginning of the universe. Physicists featured include Dr. Lisa Randall of Harvard University, MacArthur Fellow Dr. David Spergel, and Dr. Brian Cox of the University of Manchester. A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production
