The Large Hadron Collider - how it works

The Large Hadron Collider is a gigantic scientific instrument near Geneva, where it spans the border between Switzerland and France about 100m underground. It is a particle accelerator used by physicists to study the smallest known particles – the fundamental building blocks of all things. Watch this video to see how it could revolutionise our understanding, from the minuscule world deep within atoms to the vastness of the Universe.
