LHC: The world hasn’t ended yet!

“Three decades after it was conceived, the world’s most powerful physics experiment has begun.

Engineers are attempting to circulate a beam of particles around the 27km-long underground tunnel which houses the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The £5bn machine on the Swiss-French border is designed to smash particles together with cataclysmic force, revealing signs of new physics.

This will re-create conditions in the Universe moments after the Big Bang.”
