This question popped up in my noggin when reading a story with this subhed: “Higgs boson was just a start for Cern’s atom smasher – other mysteries await.” We learn that the Large Hadron Collider to which the story alludes will shut down for an overhaul in preparation for exploring questions of dark matter, extra dimensions and other universes. Extraordinary.
