How Does The Large Hadron Collider Work? [Infographic] — Having discovered the Higgs boson in 2012, the Large Hadron Collider has already made quite a name for itself. But how does the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator actually work? — https://futurism.com/images/how-does-the-large-hadron-collider-work-infographic/

Synchrotrons are the highest-energy particle accelerators in the world. The Large Hadron Collider currently tops the list, with the ability to accelerate particles to an energy of 6.5 trillion electronvolts before colliding them with particles of an equal energy traveling in the opposite direction.

TIL though alchemists never succeeded in transmuting lead to gold in 1981 physicists used the particle accelerator at Berkeley to shoot Carbon nuclei at thin foils of Bismuth- the resulting collisions did produced a tiny amount of Gold atoms
