The Hadron Collider, CERN, is the world's largest high energy particle accelerator, intended to collide opposing particle beams. The 17 Mile Hadron Collider was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) with the intention of testing various predictions of high energy physics. The Collider lies in a tunnel 17 miles in circumference and 570 feet beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. The Hadron Collider was funded by and built in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries as well as hundreds of universities.

On 10 September 2008, the proton beams were successfully circulated in the main ring of the LHC for the first time. On 19 September 2008, the operations were halted due to a serious fault between two superconducting bending magnets. The Hadron Collider is scheduled to be operational again in November 2009.
