Happy Birthday, Large Hadron Collider!

May 7th celebrates the anniversary of the first full powering-up of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, mankind’s greatest scientific experiment. Just what does it take to study particle acceleration on such a massive scale? ┬áTS Artist Tornado Studio has modeled the LHC, in an attempt to better convey all its working parts.

While the LHC will only be operating for part of 2013, we wish it a happy 5th birthday, and look forward to its next experiment in 2015.
