The LHC is the largest and most powerful particle accelerator ever built. It took international teams numbering in the thousands to design, construct and operate the 27 km collider and its four giant particle detectors. Collider features authentic objects from CERN, home of the LHC, from huge superconducting magnets to incredibly precise detectors used to record the passage of the tiny, invisible particles.
