Thousands of scientists, billions of dollars, trillions of energy volts – there is nothing small or insignificant when it comes to the Large Hadron Collider. This daring facility could turn out to be one of the most important projects scientists have ever developed, providing answers to questions about the universe and how it was created. Critics point out that LHC is both too expensive and too dangerous, claiming that not even the brightest minds can predict what happens when particle beams crash together at such high speed. Supporters, however, say that if the world really wants to get to certain physics conclusions, then this is their chance. In order to find out more about the Large Hadron Collider, it experiments and the questions it seeks to answer – read this book.
