Hadron Collider Activated – Can You Feel It?

Scientists have switched on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the device they hope will unravel some of the remaining mysteries of the universe.

At 9.30 am local time (8.30 am British Summer Time), 300 feet below the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, the most powerful particle accelerator ever built became fully operational.

Located at CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, it is the most powerful in a series of particle accelerators that, over the last 70 years, have allowed us to penetrate deeper into the heart of matter.

It will recreate conditions not seen since the big bang of creation to probe the secrets of the cosmos.
