Particle physics seeks to answer fundamental questions by studying tiny particles produced by enormous machines like the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva Switzerland. I will provide a short introduction to key questions in particle physics, highlight some of the key challenges that we are facing and illustrate how novel ideas from computing, such as quantum computing, might contribute.
