What is the universe made up of and how small can things really get?
The Large Hadron Collider is the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
It was always known that to continue to push the boundaries of science the LHC would have to be upgraded past its original design.
What is the STFC doing in the fields of particle physics and particle astrophysics?
A Toroidal LHC Apparatus is investigating a wide range of physics, from the the properties of the Higgs boson to extra dimensions and particles that could make up dark matter.
The Compact Muon Solenoid is investigating a wide range of physics, from the the properties of the Higgs boson to extra dimensions and particles that could make up dark matter.
A Large Ion Collider Experiment is one of the largest experiments in the world devoted to researching the physics of matter at an infinitely small scale.
The Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment was built to probe our understanding of the beauty quark and its interactions in the early universe.
