Have you ever questioned the nature of existence? Have you wondered how we got here, how it all started, and what’s keeping it going? For most of us, it’s not long before we realise that these matters are beyond our comprehension. Yet these are some of the questions being tackled by the scientists at CERN—the world’s leading research body for particle physics.

CERN has an outstanding history of scientific and technological innovation, which has led to landmark breakthroughs like the invention of the World Wide Web and the discovery of the Higgs boson. While we are more likely to associate individuals like Tim Berners-Lee, Peter Higgs, and François Englert with these transformative innovations, CERN has been the driving force behind these and many other significant projects.
