The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the highest-energy particle collider ever made and is considered as “one of the great engineering milestones of mankind.” It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008, with the aim of allowing physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energy physics, and particularly prove or disprove the existence of the theorized Higgs particle and of the large family of new particles predicted by supersymmetric theories. The LHC is expected to address some of the still unsolved questions of physics, advancing human understanding of physical laws. It contains seven detectors each designed for specific kinds of exploration.

CERN is also a historical place for the Internet. It was here that Tim Berners-Lee invented a network-based implementation of the hypertext concept in 1989, one of the cornerstones of the Internet.

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (French: Organisation Européenne pour la Recherche Nucléaire Italian: Organizzazione Europea per la Ricerca Nucleare), known as CERN or Cern (/ˈsɜrn/; French pronunciation: ​[sɛʁn]; see History) is an international organization whose purpose is to operate the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. Established in 1954, the organization is based in the northwest suburbs of Geneva on the Franco–Swiss border, (46°14′3″N 6°3′19″E) and has 20 European member states.
