The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest particle accelerator in the world.
It is located at a depth of 175 meters in parts below the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva in Switzerland and has a tunnel circumference of 27 kilometers.
More than 10,000 scientists and engineers from more than 100 countries participated in this massive piece of engineering.
It was built with the aim of exploring various theories of physics in the field of physics.
The Higgs Bozon is known to many as the God particle and is said to contain enough energy to propel us into a new age. The discovery of such a particle could actually set a new path in terms of how we are powered by everyday luxuries, such as our homes, cars, motorcycles, ovens, gadgets, swimming pools, “If I’m lucky enough to own one, I can go right here.”
So how close are we to spotting this exciting particle? Well, actually, after the electrons smashed into themselves at very high speeds, there were moments when we got close, but in this moment it wasn’t close enough.
What would happen if something went wrong well there’s a small chance of a black hole appearing nice to know people asked my opinion before building this…
But what do you actually do?
The Large Hadron Collider is a particle accelerator – a device that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds and contain them in well-defined beams.
Charged particles are accelerated and energized to very high speeds and then collide with other particles. The purpose of this collision is to allow scientists to view the byproducts of the collision, and these byproducts give us insight into the subatomic world and the laws and behavior of these subatomic particles.
The LHC is expected to answer many fundamental questions in physics and give us greater insight into the workings of nature.
These questions cover things like the interrelationship between quantum mechanics and general relativity, the deep structure of space and time and the nature of dark matter. This amazing piece of science and engineering has already had a huge impact on the world of science with breakthroughs like locating the Higgs Bozon, who knows what else will be discovered in this groundbreaking field of science.
The Higgs Bozon is known as the God particle as it is said to contain the energy used at the beginning of the Big Bang, by finding this particle will help scientists create new forms of clean renewable energy as well as other possibilities such as space travel.
