The Next Big Bang Premieres Sunday, March 16th at 8:00pm EST on The History Channel (Check local listings for other dates and times.) This year, the largest, most powerful science experiment in history will be turned on. The "Large Hadron Collider" at the CERN laboratory in Geneva Switzerland was the brainchild of some of the greatest minds in modern physics. It cost $10 billion, is 17 miles around and its resulting data has the potential to explain why we and the Universe exist. Particle physicist David Kaplan guides viewers on an amazing journey involving the struggles to plan and build the LHC, how it was constructed and what are its mechanics. Dive into the history of particle physics and learn how science arrived at the doorstep of unveiling the mysteries of what occurred during first 3 microseconds after the big bang. This visually compelling documentary will explore some of the most puzzling questions in scientific history. What is dark matter? What are extra dimensions? Will they find the elusive Higgs boson...the god particle? They may find all the answers at the LHC, or they may find something completely new and unexpected. One thing is certain, whatever the scientists at the LHC discover, it is sure to be the Next Big Bang in physics.
