The Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (European Council for Nuclear Research) or CERN is all set to start its groundbreaking experiment which is going to become the greatest experiment in the history of mankind.
It has constructed a Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France for conducting particle beam tests
Six experiments (CMS, ATLAS, LHCb, TOTEM, LHC-forward and ALICE) are currently being built, and will be running on the collider; each of them will study particle collisions under a different point of view, and with different technologies.
Simply put, the scientists are going to smash particles at 99.99% speed of light to study the new particles & beam reactions.It is said this experiment may recreate the big bang scenario and probably the conditions where a black hole is formed.
Sounds dangerous enough .But if the experiment is successful as intended, it could open up a whole lot of possibilities where science fiction movies can turn into realities.
But if it is a disaster,well no one will be left to blame anyone
