Caption: CERN equipment in a laboratory in 1963. CERN is the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. It uses accelerators to form beams of high-energy particles and collide them with targets. The collisions often take place in a central hole, like the one seen. The new particles that are created radiate outwards to be detected by the surrounding equipment. The results allow physicists to understand the fundamental structure of matter. Many of the key discoveries in particle physics were made at CERN, which was founded in 1954.
