UK engineers and scientists, with their colleagues from around the globe, are eagerly awaiting the 10th September 2008, when the world’s biggest scientific experiment, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be switched on. The LHC, 100m below ground, is the most
powerful particle accelerator ever built by man and will seek answers to some of the most fundamental mysteries of our Universe, from anti-matter to dark matter and the existence of extra dimensions. Whether the LHC confirms or denies leading theories, its
results will start a new age in our understanding of physics and the entire Universe.
