The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland. It took 10,000 scientists nearly a decade to build and cost over $13 billion.
It helped us discover the Higgs Boson particle — an elusive particle that gives mass to other particles. Hurrah!
When we turned on the Large Hadron Collider for the second time, we reported no major discoveries — a few anomalies, but nothing significant.
By definition, an easy problem is easy — requiring very little time, energy, or money to solve.
When solving a difficult problem, you need to push harder, stay longer, or try something new.
More often than not, someone has already tried pushing harder and staying longer.
Time to try something new.
