Symmetry magazine asked physicists to wax scientific about why particle physics matters, and the resulting series of videos gets to the heart of why we love the exploration and discovery of science. Elizabeth Worcester, one of our high-energy physicists, talks about the wonder that our vast universe holds and the work we do to understand it all:
"Why is the universe the way it is? What else could be out there? What haven’t we discovered? These questions are fascinating to everyone, so at some level high-energy physics is important because our collective gut feeling says it is."
The top five videos in the series are collected at Symmetry. Head over to check out the other videos and vote for your favorite.
