world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator (LHC)

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It is expected to address some of the most fundamental questions of physics, advancing the understanding of the deepest laws of nature.
The LHC lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as much as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. This synchrotron is designed to collide opposing particle beams of either protons at an energy of 7 teraelectronvolts (7 TeV or 1.12 microjoules) per particle, or lead nuclei at an energy of 574 TeV (92.0 ┬ÁJ) per nucleus.The term hadron refers to particles composed of quarks.

1.The LHC lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres
2.175 metres Down the earth

With a budget of 7.5 billion euros

Is LHC danger!!

1.One fear is that the LHC could produce black holes
2.Another theoretical particle the LHC might generate is a magnetic monopole

But there is a solution to stop them!!
If anything wrong happens
