Abstract
The LHC is the largest in size, the most expensive, and technologically complicated scientific project in the history of mankind. Why are the physicists and the media so excited about its launch, 12 years after construction went underway?

Accordingly, the talk will consist of two parts. In the “HOW” part, Professor Cheung will talk about the physics and engineering principles underlying the different parts of the experimental “apparatus.” And in the “WHY” part, she will address the more important question of why the results of the experiment are likely to turn out both exciting and important for physics of high energy particles, astrophysics, and cosmology.

About the Speaker
Professor Edna Cheung obtained her Bachelor degree in Physics at University of California, Berkeley in 1995, and Ph.D. at Princeton University in 2000. Driven by her great passion in understanding the universe at the fundamental level via string theory and cosmology, she has devoted her efforts in scientific research and in teaching. She is now Li-Fan Chair Professor of the Department of Physics at Nanjing University.
