Today, we take a look at this Large Hadron Collider discovery.
The Large Hadron Collider has fascinated scientists as the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator since its inception in 2008. This mammoth facility is run by the European Council for Nuclear Research, also known as CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland, as a part of its accelerator complex.
Accelerators allow researchers to propel charged particles at nearly the speed of light against objects or other particles to study how the beyond microscopic particles of our world interact to create the fabric of our everyday lives. The Large Hadron Collider is currently the most powerful accelerator in the world, meaning that it can accelerate particles at speeds beyond any other accelerator, and it just got an even bigger upgrade.
