Catch 'Particle Fever' in First Trailer for Hadron Collider Documentary
If you're interested in science at all, then you've likely heard of the Large Hadron Collider, an enormous particle accelerator that allows physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energy physics, and particularly prove or disprove the existence of the theorized Higgs particle, or God particle as it's better known. Now for those who may want to know a bit more, there's a documentary about the collider coming called Particle Fever, and it follows six of the 100,000 scientists who help put the ambitious project together as they attempt to find the origin of life, the universe and everything. Watch it!
Here's the first trailer for Mark Levinson's Particle Fever, originally from Yahoo:
Particle Fever is directed by Mark Levison, making his documentary feature directorial debut. The film chronicles the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, the particle accelerator built 100 yards below the ground outside of Geneva, Switzerland by 10,000 scientists from around the world. The machine measures 17-miles in circumference and serves as the key to discovering the Higgs boson, or the God Particle, which could hold the key to the beginnings of life in our universe. The documentary was filmed over four years, and Abramorama and Bond 360 send the film to theaters in NY on March 5th, and other theaters later.
