I shall describe the dark matter mystery, and we shall go on a speculative journey to solve it. Going back to the beginning of time, we shall witness the birth of a proton, following it through to the present day, where it ends up in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. We shall revisit the Higgs boson discovery from last year. Finally, we shall see show how the collisions between protons at CERN might give us vital clues to solve the dark matter mystery.
