Deep beneath the France–Switzerland border is the world's most complex experimental facility ever built, and the largest single machine in the world.

This keynote presentation starts there, at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Scientists with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have come to Moogfest to share history and hopes for current studies being conduscted at the facility, and enabled through a network of researcher around the world.

The session starts with a broadly accessible talk by Dr. Steven Goldfarb on how the LHC is furthering our fundamental understanding of our universe. Following this introduction, Dr. Kate Shaw will share some of her recent work with Physics Without Frontiers, a program that works to inspire, train, and motivate physics and math students in developing countries. Moderated and introduced by Duke Professor Mark Kruse.
