Higher Level Physics really gave me a hard time back then in school. Nevertheless stuff like CERN really interests me. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is trying to find out what the Universe is made of and how it works. So actually what they are trying to do is to immitate the Big Bang. In order to do so accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. After over one year of pause due to technical problems, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is now once again spinning particles through a 27 km long circle tube system. CERN is located near Geneva.
