The Large Hadron Collider is a 27 kilometer atom smasher! How does it work and what can it tell us about the make-up of our universe?
CERN Overview Animation
“This animation shows how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) works.”
After The Higgs, LHC Rounds Up The Unusual Suspects In Particle Physics
“Supersymmetry and dark matter, neutralinos, gravitinos and gluinos … you can expect exotic topics like these to be spinning around as the Large Hadron Collider ramps up to smash subatomic particles again over the next couple of months.”
Excitement Grows As Large Hadron Collider Hints At New Particle
“When hundreds of physicists gathered this week in La Thuile, an old mining town in the heart of the Italian alps, one short and simple question hung in the cool, crisp air: is it real? The source of their fascination, and no little excitement, was light. Not the sunlight that made the snow glint on the mountains in the Aosta valley, but light inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) across the border near Geneva. The machine had detected more photons than expected as it smashed particles beneath the quiet Swiss countryside. The brief flashes of light might be the first glimpse of the next big discovery.”
