Questions on Antimatter / The Large Hadron Collider of CERN

CERN Accelerating science

The Large Hadron Collider | CERN. The 27-kilometre LHC is the world’s largest particle accelerator. It collides protons or lead ions at energies approaching the speed of light.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. It first started up on 10 September 2008, and remains the latest addition to CERN’s accelerator complex. The LHC consists of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets with a number of accelerating structures to boost the energy of the particles along the way.
