It is one of the biggest and most controversial experiments to be carried out in recent times. On September 10, a machine costing a staggering $7.75 billion will be fired up to recapture conditions not seen since the birth of the universe almost 14 billion years ago.
The machine, located at CERN, a Geneva-based nuclear research lab, will carry on the experiment inside a 27-km tunnel deep beneath the French-Swiss border.
The news of the experiment has evoked resentment from some experts, who feel that such an experiment could cause the end of the universe.
In fact, scientists working on to recreate forces that occurred immediately after the Big Bang have received death threats.
