Monday, November 10, 2014 - Woodland Theater, Davies Center

Hors d'oeuvres reception 6:30 pm

Screening begins 7:00 pm

PARTICLE FEVER gives audiences a front row seat to our generation's most significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. The film follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking 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? PARTICLE FEVER is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind the tale of this epic experiment.

Join us at UW-Eau Claire's Woodland Theater in the Davies Center on Monday, November 10, 2014 for this event.  An hors d'oeuvres reception will be held at 6:30pm, followed by the screening at 7:00pm.  A Q&A with particle physicists from UW-Madison who worked on the LHC project will be held after the showing.
