With an ability to change our understanding of the world around us and give us the reasons of our own existence, Cern's Large Hadron Collider is for now the most spectacular and most technological marvel modern science has created!

Kicking the world’s largest machine into overdrive is turning out to be harder than expected. Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, near Geneva in
