Title: The first few seconds of our universe and its evolution: quo vadis
A description of the very early times after the birth of our universe will be discussed. Our search for what really happened to set the course for the present universe will also be described focusing on the highest energy colliding beam accelerator: the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the highlights related to Higgs boson physics. Progress since its discovery, some searches for beyond the Standard Model physics with hopes for the future and plans for upgrades will be explained.
