Sophie takes her cousin Nick on a tour of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, to explore the mysteries of the subatomic universe. Nick is looking for ideas for a comic strip he is writing and Sophie helps him by teaching him about the fundamental particles and forces. They also learn about the Large Hadron Collider, Dark Matter, and the Big Bang with the help of some graduate students who work there. Science is amazing and Nick gets lots of ideas for his comic book superheroes.
