He explained why we need accelerators and how it works. Especially the function of the quadrupoles and dipoles, that confine the beam and gives the correct vibration.
At launch we meet a Nobel Prize Physicist Carlo Rubbia. The Nobel Prize was for the work leading to the discovery of the W and Z particles at CERN

At launch also talked with Greg and Dave from Perimeter Institute.
These guys are rock, they know how to teach Modern Physics in a new way. Follow them at twitter.
Also Greg is a good soccer player.

After lunch we had the first lecture about Medical Applications from Physics by Manjit Dosanjh.
She talked about accelerators, detectors and how it changes our medical care: accelerators for tumor target and detectors for medical imaging.
