Higgs Boson: UCI Physicists Play Key Role in ATLAS Experiment
UC Irvine scientists are playing a key role in the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. Built in Switzerland, it seeks to recreate conditions just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang. It will do this by smashing subatomic particles together at very high speeds around a 17-mile underground ring. Scientists hope the LHC will explain basic forces that have shaped our universe.
