How the Large Hadron Collider Works

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and most complex scientific instrument ever built and the highest energy particle accelerator in the world. The accelerator is located 100 meters underground and runs 27 kilometers through both French and Swiss territory. It really is an amazing creation! Watch this great video to know how it works:

Finally, someone posts about the world's greatest experiment!

BTW, I'm amazed how some people are touting it as a sheer waste of money :S

I was glued to the TV watching the tests the other day, and it was interesting to note that on almost all TV channels the news presenters were completely blank and had no technical knowledge of what they were giving to the viewers.

yeah, they should just call in some physics guy to walk them through it rather than letting them confuse the viewers. Anyway, can't wait for the actual test man
