What is CERN?

Question asked by: knowitall

The Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire is a giant particle accelerator built deep underground in Geneva, Switzerland. It works by accelerating tiny, sub-atomic particles to near light speed and colliding them with each other, creating conditions of a likeness to those at the time of the theoretical start of the universe, the Big Bang. It is hoped that the particles that momentarily are created by such a collision will further our understanding of the world around us.
