Could there be a single energetic field, called the Higgs field and nicknamed `The God Particle,' that bestows mass upon everything else in the universe? Do the matter particles in the universe have counterparts in the world of force, and those of force in the world of matter, through the hypothetical property called supersymmetry? Might space have unseen dimensions into which the agents of gravity can stealthily disappear? Why does the universe have far more matter than antimatter? Will mini-black-holes be produced in the LHC's energetic collisions? If so, could they possibly represent a danger? Why did the potentially more powerful Superconducting Super Collider (SCC) suddenly get cancelled and what were the repercussions of that decision?
Collider investigates these fascinating questions and more, offering the background behind humanity's search for the most fundamental components of the cosmos. Take a literary trip into the fiery origins of all things and discover the path to ultimate unity!
