Underneath some nondescript farmland near Geneva, on the border of France and Switzerland, the world’s biggest and most expensive scientific experiment is ready to re-start. LHC at the Cern laboratory – were preparing to switch it on today for the first time in two years, ahead of the next series of experiments.
After two years undergoing upgrades, the CERN Large Hadron Collider is gearing up for a new round of experiments, and things could get interesting this time. If scientists detect miniature black holes when using the Large Hadron Collider it could prove the existence of parallel universes and possibly disprove the Big Bang theory.
The world’s most powerful sub-atomic particle accelerator – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Cern) in Geneva – has been given the go-ahead to re-start after being closed for two years of maintenance, now LHC is ready to explain one of the biggest mysteries of the Universe – the nature of dark matter.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. It first started up on 10 September 2008, and remains the latest addition to CERN’s accelerator complex. Here’s some interesting facts about Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Two extraordinary events are underway in February in science and technology, the first in quantum physics and the other in computer security. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will be brought back online next month to face its next challenge, to seek evidence confirming the validity of extensions to the Standard Model of physics in general, and the ominously-named ‘dark matter’, in particular.
