Synopsis

PARTICLE FEVER gives audiences a front row seat to our generation's most significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens. The film follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet.

10,000 scientists from over 100 countries join forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist? Particle Fever is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind the tale of this epic experiment.

Reviews

It plays out with all the suspense of a thriller.

— Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

Even the most math-averse viewer will be on pins and needs to know the results.

— Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic

The enthusiasm, idealism, and cheerful brilliance of the six subjects convey the thrill, if not the full significance, of this scientific breakthrough.

— Peter Keough, Boston Globe
