    Experimental Elementary Particle Physics (or High Energy Physics)

    "Professor Sunil Somalwar smashes very high energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland.  He studies head-on proton-proton collisions with protons travelling at about 99.9999995% of the speed of light. These collisions create conditions that existed in our universe soon after the Big Bang and help us answer fundamental questions such as how the universe came about, what it is made of, why things attract or repel each other and where all the antimatter has gone."
