Description

The large Hadron Collider, a 27-kilometer long particle accelerator, the latest in a long series of experiments designed to probe the inner workings of matter. Located in a tunnel beneath the Swiss/French border near Gebeva, it was turned into a great fanfare in late 2008, An accident delayed operations by a further year and only in 2010 did physics data-taking start in earnest. The talk will cover the motivations for building particle accelerators, the history of particle physics and the machines it has spawned, an overview of the LHC and the experiments it supports, and finally and look to the future.
