Description

Curiosity is as old as humankind, and it is CERN’s raison d’être. When the Laboratory was founded, the structure of matter was a mystery. Today, we know that all visible matter in the Universe is composed of a remarkably small number of particles, whose behaviour is governed by four distinct forces. CERN has played a vital role in reaching this understanding. Have we reached the end of the road in understanding nature? Far from it. There is still much to learn about the Higgs boson, the messenger of the Brout-Englert-Higgs field, and many other puzzles remain about how and why matter in the Universe is the way it is. Watch CERN’s contribution to this science in this video: “CERN and the rise of the Standard Model” Read more: http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2014/09/cern-turns-60-celebrates-peaceful-collaboration-science -Producer- CERN Video Productions -Director- Christoph Martin Madsen -Content- James Gillies Christine Sutton -Content assistant- Dan Noyes Paola Catapano Corinne Pralavorio -Script- Katarina Anthony-Kittelsen Christoph Martin Madsen -Editing- Christoph Martin Madsen -Editing assistant- Marie-Garance Trzewik Raquel Navarrete Pardo -Graphics- CERN graphic design service -Animations- Daniel Dominguez Noemi Caraban Marie-Garance Trzewik -Voiceover- Cian O'Luanaigh -Pictures- Englert photo - Francois Englert Broute photo - Robert Brout CC BY-SA 3.0 Higgs photo - University of Edinburgh The Milky Way panorama - ESO/S.
