Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator complex.
It collides the opposing beams of protons with very high kinetic energy. The world’s largest particle accelerator is used to explorer the limitations and the critical values of the Standard Model of particle physics. The LHC was built by CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), near to Geneva (Switzerland). Map.
Why is the LCH so interesting for us?
With experimenting we can collect new informations about our world, we can get answers for the most annoying questions from physic. The collected data can be used in many ways, example in other sciences, like physic, chemic, medicine.
September 10, 9:00 AM. The beams were started and circulated over the LHC, and the first high energy collision is planned to October 21.
Nowadays the Large Hadron Collider become very famous, together with some paranoias about destroying the world, making black holes and, … destroying the world, or simply destroying anything. As CERN reported, LHC is safe for testing, and will not endanger our planet. You can read more about the Safety of the Large Hadron Collider.
I’ll try to track as fast as I can the major changes, news with LHC. If you want to read the latest informations add Google Alert by clicking here.
