A Little Peek Inside Cern in Meyrin
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN or Cern is an international organization whose purpose is to operate the world's largest particle physics laboratory. The main site is at Meyrin, near Geneva. As hundreds of engineers and workers start two years of work to fit out the giant LHC particle collider to reach deep into unknown realms of nature, CERN physicists look to the vast machine to unveil by the end of the decade the nature of the mysterious dark matter that makes up a quarter of the universe and perhaps find new dimensions of space.
