TV News Magazine Presentation: Einstein by Schweizer Fernsehen (2009)

In this episode of Einstein, students from the University of Zurich explain the LHC physics experiments with chocolate and coffee cups. Using these ordinary items, the young researchers demonstrate what happens when two protons collide and how they are measured and detected. They also visit the CMS and LHCb detectors. Other topics in this episode include studies of crash test dummies to determine the right kind of protection needed for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding; image researchers at the University of Zurich poll people on the effects of image verses hard facts; the enormous potential of LED lights as the source of light for the future; and scientists determine that our closest ancestors are not the chimpanzee or orangutan, but the common marmoset.
