Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on the first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity? PARTICLE FEVER gives audiences a front row seat to our generation's most significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. Following six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, PARTICLE FEVER marks the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet. 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries join forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist? A celebration of discovery, PARTICLE FEVER reveals the very human stories behind this epic experiment.
