Sometimes it feels like we're all surrounded by things that are moving really fast. It's true, and it's not just the traffic on I-77. Every moment, we're bombarded by sub-atomic particles traveling close to the speed of light. They're not dangerous; what science wants to know about them is where do they come from? And what makes them travel so fast? Finding answers requires a lot of scientists and an observatory bigger than Luxembourg.
