London, Mar 30: After a frustrating 18-month delay, the physicists across the world are celebrating as the crucial 'Big Bang' experiment is set to take place on Tuesday, Mar 30.
The experiment will be conducted on a Big Bang machine known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It will try to collide particles at the highest energy level to create microscopic bursts of energy in a bid to recreate or rather mimic the conditions that existed a fraction of a second after the Big Bang.
The experiment was first initiated on Sep 10, 2008. Just nine days later on Sep 19, 2008 the experiment hit a massive road block as freezing helium gas leaked out. This led to the experiment being delayed for over a year.
