What is the world made of? On the trail of elusive particles
Juan José Gómez Cadenas, Professor of Physics, Donostia International Physics Center, San Sebastian, and Ikerbasque Foundation for Science, Bilbao, Spain; Lucio Rossi, Professor of Physics, University of Milan, CERN visiting scientist. Introduced by Marco Bersanelli, Professor of Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Milan.
Much of the physical reality that surrounds us is made of forms of matter and energy that we do not yet know or understand. The frontier of research into the infinitely small focuses on the tiniest and most elusive particles: neutrinos and dark matter. Two leaders of the most advanced studies in this field share their experience, as men and as scientists, grappling with big open issues and with sophisticated instruments designed to investigate nature at new levels of depth.
