A general overview of the main unknowns in Particle Physics and Astrophysics is given to introduce the importance of the LHC Collider. The LHC collider will start its operation next week and will be able to provide some of the answers. A report will then be presented on the construction and status of the LHC experiments, followed by the expectations for new results in 2010.
