The Big Bang Machine
Science fiction, conspiracies and physics collide in this film about the machine that has scientists enthralled. Will man's insatiable thirst for knowledge end up destroying the world?
In 2008, the 'Large Hadron Collider' gripped the world with fears that the massive machine filling a 27km circular tunnel would engulf the world in a black hole. Doomsday was approaching according to modern day media-scientists claiming, "it's ridiculous". "You could never produce sufficient anti-protons" for such a feat, says a CERN scientist. Two years on Doomsday has not yet arrived and the machine has collided sub-atomic particles with an energy reminiscent of the Big Bang. This engaging documentary brings us one step closer to understanding the mysteries of the universe and the potential dangers in exploring them.
