Imagine watching Edison as he turned on the first lightbulb, or Franklin as he received his first jolt of electricity. Particle Fever, shot over several years, follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland. Find out how it all happened at a free screening of the documentary, Particle Fever, at the Exploratorium.
Seating is limited to 150 attendees, first come, first served. The museum will be closed during this after-hours program.
Particle Fever records the start of the biggest and most expensive experiment in our planet’s history, pushing the edge of human innovation and giving audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it unfolds. Seeking to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal—to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang to find the Higgs boson.
Directed by Mark Levinson, a physicist turned filmmaker, from the inspiration and initiative of producer David Kaplan, and masterfully edited by Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The English Patient, and The Godfather trilogy), Particle Fever is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind this epic pursuit.
