What really happens at the most fundamental levels of nature?

Introducing Particle Physics explores the very frontiers of our knowledge, even showing how particle physicists are now using theory and experiment to probe our very concept of what is real.

From the earliest history of the atomic theory through to supersymmetry, micro-black holes, dark matter, the Higgs boson, and the possibly mythical graviton, practising physicist and CERN contributor Tom Whyntie gives us a mind-expanding tour of cutting-edge science.

Featuring brilliant illustrations from Oliver Pugh, Introducing Particle Physics is a unique tour through the most astonishing and challenging science being undertaken today.

It’s probably fair to say that C.T.R. Wilson wasn’t too bothered about missing out on the discovery of cosmic rays. Back in September 1894, when he observed the “wonderful optical phenomena shown when the sun shone on the clouds” on Ben Nevis, he had decided to try to recreate the phenomenon in the laboratory. (As I said, physicists are all about control – and who wouldn’t want clouds on demand?) He developed his cloud chamber while working in the Cavendish Laboratory
