hadronGeneva, Switzerland, Mar 31, (THAINDIAN NEWS) For years scientists have been trying to find the exact happening which led to the birth of the Universe. However, according to many scientists they have been only able to know a negligible percentage of the Universe’s beginning and happenings. This has led the scientists all over the world to collaborate in the biggest experiment in which scientists from many nations came together to build a Large Hadron Collider. On Tuesday the years of hard work of the scientists yielded result when the two proton beams were crashed in the Large Hadron Collider. According to reports the experiment as was being anticipated generated conditions which prevailed at the time of the beginning of the Universe. The successful result that has come out of the grandest experiment will solve many mysteries surrounding the big Universe.

On Tuesday the accelerating proton beams in the Large Hadron Collider were collided together which then produced the anticipated minuscule particles of speed which has never been achieved by any particle collision. The force that was produced was according to reports thrice more than that the researchers had created earlier. The scientists who were monitoring the experiment congratulated each other for the successful commencement of the experiment.

The experiment has faced many hurdles in its path. It had first reportedly faced oppositions from some scientists who believed that the experiment might produce mini black holes that could have then been dangerous. However, after many studies the scientists went with the experiment. It developed a technical snag in 2008 and the experiment was restarted in 2009. After a 2009 winter shut down, the scientists resumed the experiment and on Tuesday they were able to achieve the highest energy ever generated from a man made particle collision.
