To understand the difference between the Large Hadron Collider and the proposed International Linear Collider, you can think of the LHC as colliding cherry pies. That's because the LHC collides protons, which are made up of quarks and gluons—just like cherry pies are made up of eggs, flour, sugar, butter and, of course, cherries. The ILC, in contrast, would collide indivisible electrons that can be thought of as cherry pits.

While colliding whole pies offers a broad view that can reveal new particles and new processes, colliding the pits can reveal specific properties and detailed information that might not be clear in whole-pie data. The two types of collider rely on each other.
