As it smashes trillions of protons together at near the speed of light in the hopes of breaking them apart to see what they're made of, the Large Hadron Collider takes us back to the moments just after the birth of the universe.
Reuters - News Video Online (Apr. 5, 2015) After a two-year hiatus, scientists at Europe's CERN physics research center restart their "Big Bang" Large Hadron Collider -- and their search into the unknown. Gavino Garay reports.
