Would you like to know how the universe works? Scientists have been asking that question for a long time and have found that many of the answers can be found in the study of particle physics, the field that focuses on those impossibly tiny particles with unbelievably strange names - the hadrons and leptons, baryons and mesons, muons and gluons - so mystifying to the rest of us.
Fascinating and understandable

My brain is full!
Although difficult to get into, about midway through your mind tends to catch up with the mind blowing amount of content and information contained within these lectures. The lecturer stated midway that the amount of information is so vast that there is no one starting point to particle physics and that could not be more true. I will be listening to this multiple times to comprehensively absorb all that is presented and I would recommend the same for anyone interested.
