One of the outstanding achievements of 20th Century science was the realisation that the great diversity of nature is based on a handful of elementary particles acting under the influence of only a few fundamental forces. It forms the basis of particle physics, a field which extends beyond the confines of the atom towards a synthesis with astronomy and cosmology. We explain particle physics and show how experiments at large accelerators help us to recreate some of the conditions of the early universe.
