The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
From the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the 'Big questions, big experiment' wall chart describes the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It looks at the "big questions" about our Universe that scientists are trying to answer, and how the amazing LHC will help them to do so. The 'Tunnel to the beginning of time' poster shows the huge scale of the LHC. The LHC is the biggest scientific experiment in the world. It collides sub-atomic particles at ultra-high energies that will recreate the conditions experienced less than one billionth of a second after the Big Bang. This will allow physicists to test their fundamental theories of matter. *A Tunnel to the Beginning of Time - poster *Big Questions, Big Experiment: The Large Hadron Collider - a fold-out A5 booklet. STFC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
