Last weekend, some of the STS employees from the Biogen Project in Luterbach, Switzerland took a trip to Cern to see the Splitting the Atom Project.

See some photos from our trip here.

At CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.  

Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 22 member states. 

You can find more information about CERN and the project here.
