By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

The Guardian has compiled some interesting facts about Cern’s LHC. Its tunnel is 27 km long. The scientists will experiment with particle beams consisting of almost 3000 bunches of 100 billion particles each. At full power, each beam will be about as energetic as a car moving at 1600 km/h.

Read the complete list here.
