Big Bang

We know very little about what happened in the first seconds after the Big Bang. In this public lecture, author and Fermilab physicist Dan Hooper examines how physicists are using the Large Hadron Collider and other experiments to re-create the conditions of the Big Bang and to address mysteries such as how our universe came to contain so much matter and so little antimatter.

Understanding how the universe began has been a goal for scientists, philosophers, and theologians for millennia. In this 14-minute video, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln describes the scientific view on this topic. He covers what we know, what we think and what we may forever never know.
