Stunning photos of the Large Hardron Collider @ CERN

The Large Hardron Collider is an immense undertaking by CERN and various international scientist. It is a research project to study how atoms are constructed. How do they do this? Like any child would, by smashing the object with another object.  To be precise, they race protons around a 27km “circle” and observe how the protons will collide & the resulting chaos. A particle accelerator is used to make the protons move inside this ‘circle’.  This project is said to help explain the ‘Big Bang’ which models how the Universe was created.
