Having discovered the Higgs boson in 2012, the LHC has already made quite a name for itself. But how does it actually work? http://futurism.com/images/how-does-the-large-hadron-collider-work-infographic/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=Futurism&utm_content=How%20Does%20The%20Large%20Hadron%20Collider%20Work%3F%20%5BInfographic%5D
Part of CERN's Large Hadron Collider, used by physicists to test theories of particle physics. It helped prove the existence of the Higgs Boson particle. It lies 175 metres deep under the French-Swiss border.
