World survives Large Hadron Collider 'mini-Big Bangs'

One of the most ambitious scientific undertakings in history, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has switched to smashing lead ions, recreating in miniature temperatures on par with ones theorised to have existed during the Big Bang.

Built near Geneva in Switzerland with the goal of investigating particle physics interactions, the LHC at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) took only four days to using lead ions in the particle accelerator, CERN said in a statement on November 8.

"Operating the LHC with lead ions - lead atoms stripped of electrons - is completely different from operating the machine with protons. From the source to collisions, operational parameters have to be re-established for the new type of beam," CERN said.
