(Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire)
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, which is situated close to Geneva in Switzerland and is supported by a number of European nations. It runs the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), which has a 7-kilometre underground tunnel enabling protons to be accelerated to 400 GeV, the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP), in which 50 GeV electron and positron beams are collided and, since 2008, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest accelerator, which allows 7 TeV proton beams to collide.
