Discovering the Higgs Boson

Buried about 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.  This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to very high energies and then collides them at four different places. ...

And the discovery made Peter Higgs very happy.

This color poster is written in both French and English.
The poster includes simple explanations of what matter and anti-matter are, and describes briefly how antimatter behaves differently in reality that what would be expected. The text concludes stating that the LHCb Experiment on the...

This virtual tour of LHCb allows viewers to click on key components of the LHCb on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Viewers can choose from the following components for a close view:
