Large Hadron Collider, or LHC

The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC being built by CERN is without question the largest and most complex machine ever constructed by Man. The LHC is the world’s largest refrigerator, requiring 10,080 tons of liquid nitrogen and nearly 60 tons of liquid helium to bring the temperature of the collider’s huge electromagnets down to -271.3°C (1.9 Kelvin).
