2008 Geneva, CERN- Nuclear Research Centre
In 2008, the particle accelerator of the European nuclear research centre CERN started operation, one of the biggest and most complex machines in this world. The extremely high performance of the accelerator is expected to push back the frontiers of knowledge in physics so as to find the last and decisive missing particle for the standard model of particle physics.
The storage ring in which the experiments are carried out has a length of 27 km and lies 100 m below the surface. The construction cost of only the storage ring amounted to 3 billion euros.
