About Large Hadron Collider

Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is popular as as the Big Bang machine. In October 09, all eight sectors of the LHC are cooled to their operating temperature of 1.9 kelvin (-271C; -456F) - colder than deep space.

Re initiation of operations - March 2010

Reports indicated that LHC encountered some glitches in starting up its operations but in the end the LHC experiment was successful.
