Video: Colliding Particles, or "What the hell is the Large Hadron Collider for?"

Do you know why the Large Hadron Collider actually exists, besides looking spiffy and putting the fear of instant void in evening newscasters? Watch "Colliding Particles: Hunting the Higgs", a stylish series of films produced by Mike Paterson. The first is above, but they're up to episode 4 now. Good stuff.

Update: I really didn't mean to type "Large Hardon Collider", but you would be right to think that is not beneath me.
