Jenn Ellis and Cliff Lauson, Ben Allanach

We have a fascinating conversation with Ben Allanach about his quest to find new particles and forces (Z-Primes anyone?) by smashing together other particles, how science is both beautiful and creative, and how he became involved with an intergalactic travel agency. Ben is Professor of Theoretical Physics in the Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group at the University of Cambridge, a Visiting Scientist at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, and also a Quantum Selves artist.
