We are living in a Golden Age of physics. Forty or so years ago, three brilliant, yet little-known scientists – an American, a Dutchman and an Englishman – made breakthroughs that inspired the construction of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN: a 27 kilometre-long machine that has already cost ten billion dollars, taken 20 years to build, and now promises to reveal how the universe itself came to be. Eminent physicist and award-winning author Professor Frank Close draws upon his close friendships with those involved to tell the inside story of those 40 years of research, breakthrough and endeavour. .
