How Physics Answers Gauguin’s Questions About the Universe

Talk

In a famous painting, Paul Gauguin posed three fundamental questions about our place in the Universe: “What are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?” A physicist interprets these questions as follows: “What are we made of? What happened early in the Universe? What is the future of the Universe?” Particle physicists are seeking scientific answers to these questions, in particular through experiments with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
