Particle Fever

When: Tue., June 3, 7 p.m. 2014

Imagine being able to watch as Edison turned on the first light bulb, or as Franklin received his first jolt of electricity. For the first time, a film gives audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. Particle Fever 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, pushing the edge of human innovation. After the screening, Johns Hopkins professor David Kaplan, producer of the film and prominent physicist in the film, and University of Rochester professor Regina Demina, Ph.D will discuss the film with you and answer questions.
