I finally saw the Particle Fever documentary this weekend. I am a physics enthusiast, or "closet science nerd", and not an active scientist. That being said, I found this movie to be a bit simplified. However, I am glad it was created in that way. I truly hope that it inspires, without intimidating, anyone interested in physics. There were moments of excitement, and moments of joy at the triumphs of what Cern has achieved. Never the less, I was hoping to see and learn more of the incredible feats of engineering required to create this machine, (besides the impressive images). Overall, it was an absolute worthwhile investment to see the film. I would definitely recommend it.
I would be most interested to hear thoughts of others who have seen it.
