The Final Frontier of All Human Knowledge!
Hello everyone! I'm currently based at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland, the facility where we probe the deepest questions about our universe(s) - where does mass come from, what is dark energy made of, how did everything begin (if there is actually a beginning in the conventional sense), where did all the missing antimatter go... Questions that we might finally answer with the LHC - the most powerful and most high-tech machine ever constructed!
The large circle is the LHC. Genève Aéroport is on the east.
Right now we have just publicly released the latest experimental results for proton collisions carried out from 2010-2011 at 7 terra-electron-volts (TeV) of energy. This is a really exciting time for us, because once we're sure everything is working smoothly, the LHC will be upgraded to its maximum capacity of 14 TeV, and that's where all the fantastic discoveries ought to happen.
An interesting collision event at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at the LHC.
