The other accelerators at CERN are:

  • Proton Linear particle accelerator (Linac2)
  • Heavy Ion Linear Particle accelerator (Linac3)
  • The Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB)
  • Proton Synchrotron (PS);(628m circumference, was 1960 with it's Proton Energy of 26,3GeV the world's most powerful accelerator. It was originally used for the generation of Antiprotons and since 1981 also for collisions of Protons and Antiprotons)
  • Synchro-Cyclotron (not in use)
  • Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS); (with a power of 450 GeV and a circumference of 6912m; is used to accelerate lead-ions, Positrons, Electrons, Protons and Antiprotons and as a pre-accelertor for the Large Hadron Collider
  • Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR - not in use)
  • Low Energy Antiproton Ring (LEAR - not in use)
  • Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR)
  • Antiproton Decelerator (AD); (AD's goal is it to decelarate the - from the PS created - Antiprotons, to make it possible for scientists to explore them)
  • Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP - not in use) (The LEP was 27km long; four important experiments oparated there (ALEPH, Delphi, L3 and Opal). The LEP Collider managed to reach a lot: among other things was it possible to determine the exact weight of W- and Z-Bosons. After 11 years the experiments at the LEP Collider were finalized to create space for the LHC)

Google CERN or Large Hadron Collider.

The first experiments were done mainly to check that the Large Hadron Collider itself worked at all. Later experiments will then do the actual data collection, from the collisions.

The Large Hadron Collider will work mainly with protons - hence the name (the proton is a kind of hadron). It will also do some experiments with other particles, for example, with certain atomic nuclei.

CERN's Large Hadron Collider has been repaired and is in full operation. (January 2012)

The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is located at CERN on the border between France and Switzerland.

No. As far as is known there are no aliens. The large hadron collider is a research tool, not a weapon.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was made primarily to prove or disprove the existence of the Higgs Boson particle.

The Large Hadron Collider is the world's largest particle accelerator at 27Km in circumference and is situated 175m below the Earth's surface.

User Avatar

the hadron collider has a diameter of 3.8 metres and has a circumference of 17 miles (27 kilometres)

The Large Hadron Collider was constructed starting in 1998, and completed in 2008. It is located in Switzerland and was created by CERN, which is a nuclear research facility.

No you can find updates on the Large Hadron Collider's (LHC) progress at the link below.

One it's hadron collider.Two,it has already started.

The Large Hadron Collider at Cern is an energy particle accelerator and produces a directed stream of charged particles. The energy of the charged particles is boosted by the accelerator.

You build a "Large Hadron Collider".

User Avatar

Most likely not. It is far more probably that the Large Hadron Collider will do exactly what the name suggests. For a time travel, a different sort of device will be necessary.

nay, the machine got repaired. LOL

Before this question may be answered properly, it must be more specific. For example, the Large Hadron Collider is in Europe. Do you mean to ask whether the founding fathers (which assumes that they all agreed on everything) would have approved the Large Hadron Collider if: ... It had been built in the United States of America; ... using public funds?

No. lol you would have heard it on the news.
