スイスとフランスの国境の地下深くに、史上最大の科学実験施設が埋まっています。 大型ハドロン衝突型加速器は、宇宙の基盤となる構成要素が何なのかを明らかにするために世界中から集まった1万人もの人々の共同作業によって作られました。

一周27kmの環状施設内を、粒子が徐々に速度を上げて光速に近づき、想像も及ばない速度で移動します。 そして、巨大な地下トンネルに設置された大聖堂ほどの大きさの検出器内で衝突します。 そのエネルギーから新しい粒子が生まれます。その一部は宇宙の誕生直後にのみ存在していたものです。

ぜひお越しください。 歴史的な偉業が成し遂げられる瞬間を目の当たりにしましょう。 不可能を可能にするエンジニアに会い、 CERNのトンネルを歩き、 衝突の中心点で、 発見の瞬間に立ち会いましょう。
