Steven Weinberg: A Collider of Possibilities
Each generation benefits from the insights and discoveries of those who came before. “If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants,” wrote Isaac Newton. In a new annual series, World Science Festival audiences are invited to stand on the shoulders of modern-day giants. Physicist and Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg’s hopes in the Large Hadron Collider lie in the possibility that it will one day discover the particle that makes up dark matter. He believes that it will be in those high energy collisions, that the dark matter particle will reveal itself.
