TED-Ed Teams up with TEDxCERN to Bring You Lessons about The Universe

You might have heard of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as the giant, powerful particle smasher that received quite a bit of attention over whether it would accidentally create a black hole and swallow the earth (don’t worry, it won’t!). But the LHC isn’t the only mind-boggling powerhouse that lives in a little town outside of Geneva at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics. Amongst atom smashers and particle detectors work a team of top-notch scientists, and here at TED-Ed we’re excited to bring their ideas to you, in the form of Lessons about the universe. How did it begin? What is it made of? How do we learn about the universe, and what do we know? Today, TED-Ed launched the first of five lessons made in partnership with TEDxCERN. The other four animated Lessons will premiere at TEDxCERN on May 3 and be available on ed.ted.com starting on May 3rd. Tune in and watch!
