Large Hadron Collider (LHC) generates a 'mini-Big Bang'

Lead ion collision at the Large Hadron Collider. This is the world's highest-energy particle accelerator. Up until now, they were colliding protons. Using lead ions, they created temperatures a million times hotter than at the centre of the Sun.

IAS OUR DREAM: Understanding the HiGGS Boson nd related stuff !!!

IAS OUR DREAM: Understanding the HiGGS Boson nd related stuff ! [The stuff the Universe is made of.the stuff that holds it together]

CERN Hadron Collider  The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France about 100m underground. It is a particle accelerator used by physicists to study the smallest known particles – the fundamental building blocks of all things. It will revolutionise our understanding, from the minuscule world deep within atoms to the vastness of the Universe.

Antonio Saba was able to capture images from the CERN: ALICE which is a multimillion dollar mechanism used for experiments regarding the Big Bang Theory.

Fascinating facts about the Higgs Bosun.

The Higgs boson is perhaps better known by its nickname: the "God particle." Discovery of God Particle is a major breakthrough in the field of nuclea. The God Particle, I hate that name, using this is giving those religious crazies a nod.

Quark:   Atoms are divided into smaller particles called electrons, protons and neutrons. Hundreds of other elementary particles form these like mesons, muons, neutrino and positrons.  These elementary particles are again made up of extremely small particles called quarks.  Quark is hypothetical particle that carries a fractional charge. There are four kinds of quarks, each having antiparticle called Antiquark:  The Up Quark (u)  The Down Quark (d)  The Strange Quark (s)  The Charm Quark (c)

Quarks, A few years ago scientists discovered that these elementary particles are again made up of extremely small particles called quarks., Physics Case Study, Atoms and Molecules Information Guide
