Abstract

This project will support physicists in the expected era of discovery in the knowledge of fundamental particles that makes up our Universe. Having participated in developing the giant $1⁄2 billion ATLAS experiment, Australian scientists will be making major discoveries in this era. ATLAS will hunt down the Higgs boson, to understand the origin of mass of fundamental particles. It will also search for particles to explain Dark Matter, which makes up 25% of our Universe. ATLAS will search for undiscovered laws of nature to help us unify our understanding of the forces of nature. Excellent training and enhhancement of public interest, international cooperation and networking, and national p..
