Join New Scientist Live and a selection of leading scientists for 3 fascinating lectures at Conway Hall in London this Autumn. Each lecture starts at 7pm and is sure to provide plenty to inspire you and make you think. Buy your tickets now:

The LHC: Solving the mysteries of the universe, with:
Ben Allanach, professor of theoretical physics, University of Cambridge
Tara Shears, professor of physics, University of Liverpool

This year, the world’s biggest particle accelerator – the Large Hadron Collider – is focused squarely on solving some of the deepest mysteries of the universe. What happened to the antimatter created in the big bang? What is “dark matter”, the invisible stuff that makes up much of our universe? Two researchers at the sharp end discuss what we’ve learned and where we’re heading. Is our best theory of reality’s roots about to be replaced by another, called supersymmetry?
