Discussion – Physics, an experimental science (LHC)

LHC is the most powerful particle accelerator in the world and it’s located in CERN on the France-Swiss border.

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter the fundamental particles.
