''The Atom Smashers''

Physicists at Fermilab, the world’s most powerful atom smasher, are closing in on one of the universe’s best-kept secrets.  This film chronicles American physicists in their gripping search for the tiny "god particle" using an aging, cantankerous, four-mile machine beneath the Illinois prairie. The filmmakers, as well as the scientists depicted in the film, will be present after the screening for a panel discussion.

General museum admission is free on September 19, however the fee to view the film is $10 per person. For more information, or to make a reservation, call the Museum of Science and Industry at 773-684-1414.
