Abstract NoteThe Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest engineering project ever undertaken, and one of the most expensive. Why are physicists around the world so excited about it? What secrets of the universe does this gargantuan piece of machinery hope to reveal? What risks are there in operating it? Could the exotic particles that are produced in the collisions--including tiny black holes that should wink into and out of existence--between subatomic particles be a threat not only to humankind but to the planet itself?
