The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN produces proton-proton collisions at the highest energies yet studied.
These create, in a very small region, the conditions of the early universe, a billionth of a second after the ‘Big Bang’!
The LHC is truly massive. It is built in a 27km circular tunnel near Geneva and the detectors which `take photographs' of the proton collisions are the size of a six storey building.
Lyn Evans was the Project Leader of the LHC during its construction stage and will discuss the massive feat of engineering and physics which was involved in its design, building and operation.
We welcome Lyn back to the city where he did his University studies.
