The Large Hadron Collider: Inside CERN’s atom smasher

13 min read

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the biggest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world. It is located at the European particle physics laboratory CERN, in Switzerland.

Scientists use the LHC to test theoretical predictions in particle physics, particularly those associated with the “Standard Model”. While the Standard Model can explain almost all results in particle physics there are some questions left unanswered such as what is dark matter and dark energy? Why is there more matter than antimatter? The LHC is designed to help answer such questions.
