What’s the Large Hadron Collider all about? And what’s the Higgs Boson, anyway?
On March 30th, 2010, the Large Hadron Collider officially started it’s high energy physics program.
The LHC fired protons around a 27 km track at 3.5 TeV per beam, eventually colliding protons at 7 TeV.
One of the ultimate goals of the LHC is to try to discover the Higgs boson, the elusive particle that’s said to give other particles mass.
But what’s this all mean anyway? Here, I try to break it down for you.
Comments? Critiques? Hopefully I didn’t get anything *gasp* wrong.
