A Question of Survival

This presentation was given at TEDxTUM 2015 in front of a large public audience and was recorded and published on the TEDxTUM site, as well as on their YouTube channel.  It attempts to answer the question of why we do basic research by describing it as a necessary facet of human survival.

The ATLAS Public Web Pages

This talk describes the design and development strategies for implementing the ATLAS Public Web pages.  It was given at CHEP 2015 in Okinawa, Japan, and targets both Science Communicators and Web Developers.

CERN Council Seen by an Outreacher

This talk was given by request of the CERN Council for the celebration ceremony of the 60th anniversary of the Council.  It was complemented by talks given by theorists, users, young researchers, retired researchers, etc.  The goal is to remind the council of the importance of Education and...

Innovating Science Outreach

This is a talk given at ICHEP 2014 in Valencia, Spain.  The goal is to inform other science communicators of the content, platforms, and strategy supporting the Outreach and Education project of the ATLAS Experiment at CERN.  Some of the examples and lessons learned can be helpful for others....

These slides were used to introduce three different musical acts that were influenced by the physics of the LHC at CERN, the Voyager missions to the edge of the solar system, and cosmic rays from the far cosmos.  The images might be interesting for anyone making a presentation.

On the 4th of July 2012, CERN announced the discovery of a new particle, compatible with the Higgs boson. This video (in English and then French at 6:15) describes this important discovery and explains what are the Higgs field and the Higgs boson.

Affiche A0 qui s’adresse au grand public, qui explique ce qu’est le mécanisme Brout-Englert-Higgs, le boson de Higgs, pourquoi c’est important, comment on peut le chercher, comment s’est déroulée la découverte et qu’est-ce qui vient après la découverte. Aussi disponible en version anglaise. Pour...

What is explored at CERN? What happens when particles collide at the LHC? What does particle physics have to do with cosmology? How was antimatter discovered and what is the Higgs-Boson? And is there any particle use of practical physics? This package of material gives answers to these and many...

Let's Begin…

In 2012, scientists at CERN discovered evidence of the Higgs boson. The what? The Higgs boson is one of two types of fundamental particles and is a particular game-changer in the field of particle physics, proving how particles gain mass. Using the Socratic method, CERN ...

Hangout with CERN (Wednesdays at 17:00 CET)

Buried 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to high energies and then collides them in four different underground halls. Inside...

The movie is to be regarded as "proof of concept" - it features footage filmed in the LHC tunnel and at CMS with a simple pocket 3D camera (Fujifilm Real 3D W1), and some animations done with Adobe Effects.
It exists in several versions, differing in length (4-15 minutes) and the intro....
