Russia’s Nica: Big Bang Questions
The Higgs boson was predicted by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Peter Higgs in 1964 and was practically proved in 2012, when the discovery was made using the CERN collider in Switzerland. However, Russian scientists are taking it to a new level. The Nuclotron, a Russian state-of-the-art particle booster, is scheduled to be built in 2022. Its goal is to study matter that formed the universe 14 billion years ago, following the Big Bang. Once it’s functional, the data will be analysed at a research centre. The results are expected to be life-changing. So what conclusions are the scientists hoping to get, and how will they affect our daily lives?
