A new era in particle physics is about to begin. As the world's most powerful particle accelerator – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, just outside Geneva – prepares to switch on later this year, excitement is mounting about what researchers will discover from the proton–proton collisions that will take place at the 27 km-circumference machine. Many expect new particles to be created, perhaps ending the 30-year reign of the Standard Model of particle physics. Adding to the excitement, recent results from Fermilab and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in the US, and the KEK laboratory in Japan suggest that the LHC will reap a particularly bountiful harvest.
