What is meant by The Large Hadron Collider and its purpose?
Its purpose is the re-create the conditions of the Big Bang. This may make the world a better place by improving environmental conditions.
This is a big a toroidal particle accelerator (27km in circumference at CERN Geneva) used for accelerating atomic and subatomic particles to very high velocities. Two series of experiments were completed. One is accelerating protons and making them smashing into one another. They achieved 99.99999% of the speed of light and smashing protons made them to find and confirm the existence of Higgs Boson. Second series Colliding Lead ions made the mini big bang recently. Third series of experiments are due to start soon. 2010-11-18
