Everything we experience in our everyday lives is the result of just a few fundamental particles. A ray of sunshine is a stream of particles of light, or photons. Your own body is a complex machine made of quarks and electrons. Physicists have uncovered much about the structure of matter, but there still remain some huge unsolved mysteries. Join the Collider team as they take a light-hearted romp across the frontiers of physics, from Higgs bosons to enigmatic dark matter.
