In November of 2009, the CERN particle collider broke the world record for the fastest atom smashing ever created since the big bang. Now, the collider has tripled the record and smashes atoms at 3.48 trillion electron volts or TEV in order to peer into the secrets of what happened during and after the ‘big bang’. The researchers at CERN also are looking into dark matter and an elusive particle dubbed the ‘Higgs Boson’ for which modern physics is based upon. The CERN scientists hope to reach nearly the speed of light with these particles and smash open some of the secrets of the universe, which can only be answered by these means.
