The beginning of the universe, for beginners is the premiere of a series of five, first of their kind, collaborations between CERN and TED Ed that feature content on the origins of the universe, dark matter, antimatter, big data and the Higgs boson. These animations were specially developed by CERN scientists and animated by talented animators who work with TED-Ed. The other four animations will premiere at TEDxCERN, another first of its kind event, on 3 May from 2pm - 8pm CEST, and the animated lessons will be available on ed.ted.com starting on 3 May. The webcast will be available to the public on the TEDxCERN website. Tune in and watch!
