The Large Hadron Collider: Entering a New Era of Fundamental Science
Rolf-Dieter Heuer, CERN
April 12, 2011

With the start of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, particle physics is entering a new era. The LHC will open up a new chapter in high-energy physics, providing a deeper understanding of the universe and any of the insights gained could change our view of the world. We expect revolutionary results about the origin of matter, the nature of dark matter and possibly glimpses of extra spatial dimensions. The talk will address the exciting physics prospects offered by the LHC, present first results since the start of data taking on 30th March last year and will have a forward look to particle physics at the energy frontier.
