Heard of the LHC? The 27km particle accelerator? If it interests you, then maybe you’d also like to read about the future of it … going both bigger and smaller! … More From 100 km down to just 2.5 cm … the future of particle accelerators
Chemical reactions occur all around us all the time. They’re really fast because the molecules move so fast. But as you drop the temperature, these same molecules begin to slow down. Not particularly noticeably at first … the bigger thing you’ll notice is the reactions happen less frequently (the rate of reaction decreases) because there’s … More Super-cold Chemistry
