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