Particle physics doesn't just expand our horizons; it helps explain the universe by examining the nature of matter, both seen and unseen. In this video lecture from the 2009 Falling Walls Conference, hear from Rolf-Dieter Heuer, who works with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. He discusses their quest to provide experimental evidence either confirming or refuting the existence of the Higgs boson, an elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics, and to break the wall of the hidden universe, the 96 percent of it that takes the form of dark matter and energy. In Heuer's career as a physicist, he has worked on the construction and operation of several large particle detector systems, among them JADE at the German Electron Synchrotron in Hamburg, Germany.
