‘Back to Creation’
In spring 2009, the start button for the biggest scientific experiment in the history of mankind will be pressed. Using the energy required to power Geneva, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will investigate many of the mysteries surrounding the smallest things in nature by recreating the conditions immediately after the Big Bang. It may also reveal secrets that the Universe has hidden since the early stages of its birth. Come along to explore the immense scale of the experiment, find out how the LHC works, and examine some of the big questions it will address.
