The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) by CERN

You might be aware about the experiment being carried out at under the borders of France & Swiss.  A lot of rumours have been already stamped in your mind about “The last day of Universe” and many protests are also been carried out around the world against it. But what’s the truth and what are the rumours, do you know them?

Firstly lets talk about the experiment by CERN “The LHC” Well its is not our current scientist who thought of making this deadly laboratory but it was the idea of 80’s. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest particle accelerator complex, intended to collide opposing beams of 7 TeV protons. Its main purpose is to explore the validity and limitations of the Standard Model, the current theoretical picture for particle physics. The LHC was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), and lies under the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. The LHC project started in the minds of scientist in 1980’s, in 1994 it got its approval and the work of building it started in 1998. The first run of LHC was scheduled in 2007 but due to some problems it got delayed till 10th September 2008.

The Large Hadron Collider or LHC is basically built to know the secrets of life and how it evolved. It is being done by repeating the Big Bang. A huge number of protons will be collided in the LHC. The result will look like the Big Bang which occurred millions of years ago which produced the universe. But as the formation of universe there is also a possibility of a Black Hole being produced at earth itself which will dissolve the whole earth and its nearby planets and stars. This black whole will be created for a very short time (nearly millionth of billionth part of a second) and will get destroyed but if anything gets in contact with this, it will start expanding itself thus eating up everything that will come in its way. But its possibility is very very low, so there is no need to worry about it.

Here is a dummy animation on how it will work. The protons will be smashed at almost the speed of light and then they will be collided and observed. If all goes well the whole theories of science may change.

The project has been funded by the Swiss and France government and some other parties too. It involved nearly ~8500 scientist from 85 countries worldwide and took almost 10 years to build. It is spread in nearly 27Km diameter and is at depth of 75m-175m below earth. It also crosses the Swiss-France border four times.
