Calin Alexa one of the Romanian physicians at CERN: in a few months, the right energy values will be touched
Alexa explained that the Large Hadron Collider of CERN is a colossal machine located in a 27 kilometre (17 mile) tunnel buried under 100 meters of rock, at the borders of Switzerland and France between Lake Geneva and the Jura mountains.
Beams of protons will be accelerated in opposite directions through the tunnel, which is supercooled to 1.9 degrees above absolute zero (minus 271C). When prompted about the importance of the experiment, Alexa declared that we are facing the greatest scientific discovery that will re-write all manuals because it adds up important pieces in the elementary particle table.
Nonetheless, Alexa declared that even though there are a series of foreign reports or CERN documents questioning the security of the accelerator, in the last 20 years scientists have invested a lot in the experiment's security.
