Abstract
A light-hearted presentation about many aspects of particle accelerators like the LHC and their particle collision experiments. Aimed at technically interested non-scientists and physics buffs alike.

When the Large Hadron Collider went into operation in 2008, many people around the world (re)discovered an interest in particle physics and collision experiments. If you are reading this, particle accelerators have not destroyed the world yet, giving us a chance to talk about them.

Particle accelerators and collision experiments touch on many fascinating aspects of technology and physics that are far removed from our usual experiences: vast machines, high precision, huge energies, enormous volumes of data, tiny lifetimes and ultra-rare occurences.

This talk wants to entertain and surprise with insights into the workings of particle accelerators, the instruments used to make discoveries and the techniques used for learning from their results.

The talk is supposed to be enjoyable for the scientifically versed as well as the technically inclined or the interested observer. No physics background necessary!
