The digital images that follow are the result of a controlled “Big Bang”, made by scientists at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
The reason scientists went to the realization of this experiment was to determine how exactly the Universe began to operate. To achieve this, they created subatomic explosions, similar to those which had happened at the time of the Big Bang, using particles of lead.
These particles were cast at a speed equal to the speed of light, and when the accelerator collided in vacuum at a temperature 271 degrees below zero C, these unique photographs were taken.
