Visions 7: Particle accelerators

The Large Hadron Collider will reveal a deeper level of reality. Ingenious machines of novel design will be needed to explore this uncharted territory

Visions 7: The large hadron collider

The Large Hadron Collider being built at CERN in Geneva will certainly offer a new level of understanding of matter and forces in the Universe. 

We hope to see and learn more about the celebrated Higgs particle, which gives other fundamental particles mass. 

‘Supersymmetric’ particles and other exotic phenomena may manifest themselves, providing key evidence for powerful new descriptions of how matter and energy unify at the most fundamental level.
