Clash of Titans: The Big Bang

Imagine a moment where all of existence condensed into a singularity, infinitely hot and dense. This was the birth of our universe, an astonishing incident known as the Big Bang. As the singularity expanded, an unimaginable amount of energy was released, scattering matter and shaping the cosmos as we know it. This explosive starting point set the stage for an epic cosmic saga that continues to amaze scientists and philosophers to this day.

The aftermath of the Big Bang witnessed the formation of atoms, galaxies, and stars. Vast cosmic clouds coalesced, giving birth to brilliant stellar nurseries that would shape the nascent universe. Supernovae exploded, spreading heavy elements across space, which later became crucial building blocks for planets and life itself. This chaos eventually paved the way for the creation of our solar system, with Earth becoming the stage for an astounding story still unfolding.

Unveiling the Particles: The Standard Model

The exploration of particle physics brings us face to face with the intricacies of the universe at its most fundamental level. The Standard Model, a groundbreaking framework devised by scientists, aims to explain the diverse array of particles that make up the building blocks of matter. It affirms that matter is composed of quarks and leptons, which are guided by forces mediated by particles like the photon, W and Z bosons, and the elusive yet fascinating Higgs Boson.

In the quest to understand the fundamental forces governing our world, scientists developed powerful particle accelerators to recreate the extreme energies that were present moments after the Big Bang. These magnificent machines, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), smash particles together at incredible speeds, providing us with invaluable insights into the nature of the universe. With the technology at hand, we explore new realms of knowledge and unlock ancient secrets buried within subatomic particles.

The God Particle: The Enigma of the Higgs Boson

Among the most awe-inspiring discoveries in recent history is the detection of the Higgs Boson, often referred to as the "God Particle." This elusive particle plays a fundamental role in the Higgs field, which permeates the fabric of the universe and gives particles their mass. Without the Higgs field, atoms would not hold together, and life as we know it would not exist.

The quest to find the Higgs Boson took decades of meticulous research and immense collaborations. In 2012, the LHC announced the discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs Boson, solidifying our understanding of the particle's existence. This breakthrough not only confirmed a major prediction of the Standard Model but also opened up new realms of exploration, shedding light on the hidden dimensions of the universe.

Exploring the Unknown: The Future of Particle Physics

The journey from the Big Bang to the Higgs Boson has been an exhilarating rollercoaster of discovery, but our understanding of the universe is far from complete. Scientists continue to push the boundaries of knowledge, unraveling mysteries that lie beyond our grasp. With upgraded accelerators, such as the proposed Future Circular Collider (FCC), we aim to probe even deeper into the secrets of the cosmos, uncovering hidden dimensions, dark matter, and potentially revolutionizing our understanding of the universe.

From the fiery birth of the universe to the mind-bending exploration of the Higgs Boson, we find ourselves on an enthralling quest for answers. Particle physics provides us with the tools to dive into the depths of reality, unraveling the secrets that lie within. Today, as we stand at the precipice of knowledge, we eagerly await the next epoch-defining discovery that will reshape our understanding of the cosmos and our place within it.

An to the world of quarks and leptons, and of their interactions governed by fundamental symmetries of nature, as well as an to the connection that exists between worlds of the infinitesimally small and the infinitely large.The book begins with a simple presentation of the theoretical framework, the so-called Standard Model, which evolved gradually since the 1960s. The key experiments establishing it as the theory of elementary particle physics, but also its missing pieces and conceptual weaknesses are introduced. The book proceeds with the extraordinary story of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN — the largest purely scientific project ever realized. Conception, design and construction by worldwide collaborations of the detectors of size and complexity without precedent in scientific history are discussed. The book then offers the reader a state-of-the art (2020) appreciation of the depth and breadth of the physics exploration performed by the LHC experiments: the study of new forms of matter, the understanding of symmetry-breaking phenomena at the fundamental level, the exciting searches for new physics such as dark matter, additional space dimensions, new symmetries, and more. The adventure of the LHC culminated in the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 (Nobel Prize in Physics in 2013). The last chapter of this book describes the plans for the LHC during the next 15 years of exploitation and improvement, and the possible evolution of the field and future collider projects under consideration.The authors are researchers from CERN, CEA and CNRS (France), and deeply engaged in the LHC program: D Denegri in the CMS experiment, C Guyot, A Hoecker and L Roos in the ATLAS experiment. Some of them are involved since the inception of the project. They give a lively and accessible inside view of this amazing scientific and human adventure.
