The most powerful particle accelerator ever built, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), will soon resume its operations – Run II phase -  at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. It will smash proton beams of unprecedented intensity and energy, and huge high-technology detectors will record the products of the collisions. The LHC should be able to solve several mysteries, such as what is the origin of dark matter? Are there any other versions of the Higgs boson? What happened to the anti-matter in the Universe? Are there extra-dimensions beyond the ones we already observe?

 

This colloquium will present the goals and challenges of one of the biggest and most difficult projects in science ever. The motivations, challenges and accomplishments of this unprecedented project are presented, with emphasis on the intricate studies necessary to be done for the exploration of new frontiers in elementary particle physics.
