5 now abundance of chemical elements Big Bang’s afterglow Big Bang

6 Origin of particle masses? Newton didn’t know – neither do we … How did the Universe look directly after the Big Bang? Observe it! What is the Universe made of? We barely know 4%! Where is all the antimatter? Universe ought to be symmetric!

7 Astroparticle physics Accelerator-based particle physics VIRGO gravitational-wave detector Nikhef research: experiment XENON-1t deep-underground dark matter detector ANTARES deep-sea neutrino telescope AUGER cosmic ray observatory CERN: ALICE ATLAS LHCb
