CERN and the Hadron Collider
Birthplace of the World Wide Web
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, is the birthplace of the World Wide Web and home of the world’s largest machine: the Large Hadron Collider. It is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, situated in the northwest suburbs of Geneva on the Franco–Swiss border, established in 1954. In November 2010, the collisions obtained were able to generate the highest temperatures and densities ever produced in an experiment, creating a “mini-Big Bang” a million times hotter than the centre of the Sun.
