Two years ago, the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva began investigating the most powerful particle collisions physicists have ever created. Its discoveries include evidence of a new particle that many think is the famous and long-sought Higgs boson. This book tells the story of one of the world s largest particle detectors, from its inception in the late 1980s to its construction in the 2000s and its first years of operation in the 2010s. Find out why a machine designed to find tiny subatomic particles exceeds the height of the tallest dinosaurs, why the ATLAS detector throws away 99.998% of the data it finds in the blink of an eye - and why its search for discoveries that will change the way we think about the universe has only just begun.
