The Hadron Collider
Most Advanced Invention
In the past century, we have seen much
technological advancement, be it the Television, Telephone, mobile phone or even the toaster, but none of
these even come close to the biggest and perhaps the most revolutionary machine
ever to have been invented by humans; it’s the Large Hadron Collider!
The Hadron Collider Will Help Us Answer Big Questions
Present at CERN on the border between France and Switzerland is the hadron collider.
This marvelous machine has the shape of a circle and a radius of approximately 27
kilometers. It is the largest and highest energy particle accelerator in the
world and one that is helping scientists answer very crucial and fundamental
questions about the universe like “how did the universe come into being” or
“what happened to all the antimatter that was there in the beginning” or “what
causes gravity and mass”.

Finding New Particles:
These are just some of a multitude of questions that
the large hadron collider is going to help scientists answer.
Hadron Collider Helps Scientists Research the Impact of Black Holes:
The work on the hadron collider and the research carried out with it has shown many
fascinating results, for example many particles that were lost soon after the
big bang have now artificially been created within the particle accelerator,
many exotic particles have also been made and not only that but
anti-hydrogen atoms have also been made and stored
within the machine.

The machine is aimed at solving many problems in the field
of quantum mechanics, and the scientists working there say that if we don’t get
the results that we are expecting (based on theory) then it might be plausible
that everything we have understood about physics be it how things work, how gravity
effects objects, would just be plain wrong. We may have to start from scratch
all over again and redefine the very definition of physics and reshape our
While research about the fundamentals of the universe is still going on at
CERN, scientists expect to obtain fascinating results and perhaps solve problems
that have remained unsolved for many years all thanks to the hadron collider.
