The Highest Energy Machine on the Earth to Solve the Biggest Puzzles of the Universe

A talk from EMF 2022 by Alexander Belyaev

On Friday June 3, 2022 at in Stage B

The largest and the highest energy scientific device - the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is currently in operation at CERN.

This machine is unique in many respects:

- It is the most powerful microscope, which can probe the distance one million times smaller than the size of the proton

- It can reproduce conditions of the hot Early Universe with the temperature billion times higher than in the core of the sun, corresponding to a picosecond after the Big Bang

This uniqueness gives the LHC opportunity to resolve the biggest puzzles of the Universe:

- to find the origin of Matter-Antimatter asymmetry – the origin of planets and starts

- to Shed a light on the origin of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, 95% of which the Universe is

made of (stars and planets contribute only 5% to it !)

- to give us the answer on what is the ultimate theory which drives this Universe – at micro and

macro scales.

In the presentation I will explain the exciting details of the Large Hadron Collider and how it helps to solve the most challenging problems of particle physics and cosmology – from micro to macro scales.
