The Large Hadron Collider is being geared up to begin its high-energy hunt for the 'God Particle'.
Operations are expected to begin today, scientists will use the infamous particle accelerator to smash atomic particles in high-speed collisions in an attempt to mimic the conditions that would have existed at the time of the Big Bang.
Scientists at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (Cern), which operates the £5bn atom-smasher on the Franco-Swiss border, are expected to restart high-energy operations on Tuesday morning.
