  • Title: The Large Hadron Collider, CERN Text: Arial, yellow, 60 Image: picture of LHC Picture – CERN photos
  • CERN - Large Hadron Collider

    1. 1. CERN’s Large Hadron Collider
    2. 2. What is CERN?
    3. 3. CERN is European Organization for Nuclear Research
    4. 4. CERN studies FUNDAMENTAL PARTICLES – the basic particles
    5. 5. What is the Large Hadron Collider?
    6. 6. The LARGE HADRON COLLIDER , or the LHC , is a machine built by CERN
    7. 7. Its point is to solve some questions about the universe
    8. 8. and to re-create the conditions after the BIG BANG
    9. 9. Then it will also be possible to see what will happen to the universe later
    10. 10. because it is approximately 27 km in circumference. Large Hadron Collider
    11. 11. Large Hadron Collider Hadrons are particles made only of QUARKS. *
    12. 12. because inside the machine, particles collide. Large Hadron Collider
    13. 13. * QUARKS and LEPTONS are FUNDAMENTAL PARTICLES
    14. 14. * Protons and neutrons are made up of QUARKS Electrons are types of LEPTONS
    15. 15. The first time it was lounged September 2008
    16. 16. During the first run, the magnets of the LHC cooled down, and the experiment couldn’t be carried out
    17. 17. It took over a year to fix the LHC
    18. 18. The next time it was lounged 20 Nov 2009
    19. 19. We do not know how long the experiment will last since no one has ever done it before
    20. 20. It might last for years
    21. 21. How does the LHC work?
    22. 22. STEP 1:
    23. 23. Electrons are taken away from hydrogen atoms, so that only protons are left
    24. 24. OR
    25. 25. By accelerating lead vapor, electrons are taken away from lead atoms, so that only the nucleus is left
    26. 26. STEP 2:
    27. 27. Beams of HADRONS in the LHC are shot in different directions
    28. 28. At certain points, beams collide, gaining more speed
    29. 29. The maximum speed that the hadrons can reach is 0.999999991 the speed of light
    30. 30. Nothing can go faster than light. However, there is no limit to energy
    31. 31. Scientists hope to gain so much energy that it will be enough to create a model of the
    32. 32. BIG BANG
