The Large Hadron Collider is about to start the work that could lead to the discovery of fundamental new physics. Scientists working on the European machine will later attempt to smash beams of proton particles together at unprecedented energies. The seven-trillion-electronvolt (TeV) collisions will initiate 18-24 months of intensive investigations at the LHC. Scientists hope the study will bring novel insights into the nature of the cosmos and how it came into being.
