Join us for a screening of the film "Secrets of the Universe" at the Mondavi Center on October 26. Through the film, you will embark on a journey into one of the most amazing scientific instruments ever built, the Large Hadron Collider. Filmed at CERN, this 45 minute film follows UC Davis professor Manuel Calderón de la Barca Sánchez and his graduate students as they use the world's largest particle collider to recreate conditions a microsecond after the Big Bang and reveal clues about the strongest force of the universe. The film explores how the questions explored at the collider are connected to the larger questions we have been asking in Science through the centuries. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with professor Calderón de la Barca and the students featured in the film. The event is free but space is limited.
