colliding particles | codename: eurostar
colliding particles - episode 1: codename eurostar from mike paterson on Vimeo.
a brilliant short film about the search for the higgs particle. episode one in a series about the large hadron collider, it does an excellent job of humanising the story. while most of the news reporting i've seen has concentrated on the scale of the project (17 miles of tunnel, $700bn expense, etc), this film reminds us that ultimately the project is about the origin of our very existence. nice music too.
