In several senses, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is one of the biggest experiments on earth. This circular tunnel near the Franco-Swiss border is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator, but its importance far transcends that Guinness world record status. The more than 10,000 scientists and engineers participating in the project fervently hope that its tests will reveal answers to questions including, but not limited to the origin of the universe, the deep structure of space and time, and the basic laws governing interactions and forces among elementary objects. Amir D. Aczel's Present at The Creation puts you as close as you will ever get to the most significant physics experiment in history.
