The Sense of Beauty is the story of an unprecedented experiment that
involves scientists from throughout the world collaborating around the
largest machine ever constructed by human beings: the LHC (Large
Hadron Collider). As the new experiment at CERN proceeds in its
exploration of the mysterious energy that animates the universe, scientists
and artists guide us towards the shadow line where science and art, in
different ways, pursue truth and beauty.
Some of these men and women believe in god, while others believe only
in experiment and doubt. But in their search for truth they are all alert to
an elusive sixth – or seventh – sense: the sense of beauty.
An unmissable opportunity for lovers of science, of beauty, or of both.
