Physicist and surfer Garrett Lisi presents a controversial new model of the universe that -- just maybe -- answers all the big questions. If nothing else, it's the most beautiful 8-dimensional model of elementary particles and forces you've ever seen. -This is one of my favorite TED talks

This TED Talks presentation from 2008 by eminent "rock star" physicist Brian Cox explains the work being done at the CERN supercollider, the role of the modern particle physicist and the elusive and illustrious Higgs particle. The viewing guide contains ten questions, a detailed answer guide, an extension activity and Common Core standards.

Humans have been looking for the answer to this question for centuries ... and have likely been asking it for much, much longer.

In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein's notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe. (This mind-bending theory has been testing at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva).

This chart shows what the universe is made of. This chart shows all the elementary particles in the standard model of particle physics, and many non-elementary particles too. It starts with the basics: an atom contains a nucleus of protons and neutrons, which are made of quarks. The chart organizes all the important particles and classes of particles: elementary fermions (quarks, leptons, electrons, neutrinos), elementary bosons (gluons, photons, W and Z bosons, higgs, gravitons), composite p...
