This is truly amazing. I've heard of this LHC, but never really fully understood how it worked. If all goes as planned this will be a great leap for science!

I have read several articles on the hadron collider,It is a rather ambitious project as well as interesting. I wonder will this project enhancethe work of the much smaller collider that is in the USA.
