Particle physics research investigates the interactions of elementary particles, the building blocks of our universe.  This work connects the quantum world of the very small with the cosmological world of the enormous.  Scattering particles at very high energies is one avenue for such investigations that has proven to be very successful.  A new machine, the Large Hadron Collider, in Geneva, Switzerland is operating at a new energy frontier and has already afforded one major discovery with hopefully more to follow.  I will briefly explain the background of this work and try to convey the importance of these discoveries but then focus the bulk of the talk on the technologies necessary to carry out this experimentation.
