We all know the Large Hadron Collider is going to bring about the end of the world some day by opening a portal to a hostile alien dimension, and will probably manage that before it manages to locate the Higgs boson. If you aren’t a huge LHC fan wearing a big LHC foam hand, you probably only know the general gist of the LHC: It accelerators particles and smashes them together. However, if you wanted a better explanation that is more easily digestible than reading walls of text on your favorite wiki, you should check out this explanatory video that is ready and willing to teach. Foam hand optional.
