… And the construction of the Earth will be discovered

Large Handron Collider (LHC) was built in the International Center of Nuclear Researches (CERN, from French Conseil Europyen pour la of Recherche Nuclyaire) with the purpose to give answers to the key issues of particle physics. Today CERN, which has been operating in Geneva from 1954, counts 20 countries-participants.

LHC is the world’s largest and highest energy accelerator which is the circle of magnets 27 km in length equipped with devices which accelerate the particles. Inside the collider in a deep vacuum (where the pressure is ten times less than on the Moon) two bunches of particles fly toward each other with the speed close to the velocity of light. Once the project energy is reached the protons in collider will turn around in a circle 11 245 times per second (at the speed which is 99.9999991% of the velocity of light), and it will result in 600 000 000 collisions per second with the energy of 14 teraelectronvolts. For today half of project energy has been received.
