Description

What is the universe made of?

How did it start?

At CERN, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact and provide insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

Explore the mysteries of the universe and find out about the gigantic equipment used by physicists.


CERN values its interaction with students and educators. A number of educational programmes, guided tours are available for students and teachers, to help both groups learn more about CERN, particle physics and our place in the universe.
