I tried to brush up as much as I could on theoretical physics and CERN before making this animated short, but I am just an artist...I know it's not accurate - I would like to build off critique from the science community, please  ;D

Glaring problems:

    * The closer one reaches the speed of light, the larger they would get, not smaller...
    * One couldn't survive inside the vacuum/extreme cold inside the LHC
    * No cars are allowed inside the synchotron...only bikes...


All technical problems can be attributed to having only 3 weeks to work, start to finish  [:0]

Thank you!

Yeah, I made it for the CERN multimedia contest (got 2nd place oh well)

I want to make more fun, science info shorts in the future and want to make sure I hone the science to be more accurate :D
