    The most amazing physics experiment of all time, CERN's Large Hadron Collider, has been rebuilt, component-by-component, and the proton beam has now been switched back on. Its energy level is steadily increasing, and it should reach the high energy for which it was designed at some point during May 2015.

    Dr Trevor Vickey is a senior lecturer at the University of Sheffield and works on the ATLAS experiment at CERN. He will talk about what CERN scientists have already achieved and what might be revealed when the Large Hadron Collider is operating at full energy.
