The Large Hadron Collider is the largest and most complex scientific instrument ever built and the highest energy particle accelerator in the world.
The accelerator is located 100 m underground and runs through both French and Swiss territory. ( 27km circumference)
Year 2008 September 10th, marks the culmination of 20 years of work by over 8000 scientists thousands of engineers, technicians and support staff from over 80 different countries.
some critics say that this could create a black hole and suck up the entire world. but many say that even if a black hole is created it will vanish within a millionth of a second..

Today's topic is the Large Hadron Collider, a bold choice given that none of us know anything about particle accelerators. To those of you who do, feel free to angrily comment on any mistakes you notice. I assure you that we'll take them super seriously.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance to Switzerland for some of the things we said.
