Android app puts 3D Large Hadron Collider in your hand

Some scientist are predicting that we won't have any real answers from the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva until 2012, but in the meantime you can peek in on how things work via your Android smartphone.

Written by Oxford University scientists in concert with the ATLAS Experiment at CERN, the LHSee is a new app for Android phones designed to allow you to see what collision events look like. The stunning 3D graphics depicting the interactions inside the particle accelerator, as well as the "Hunt the Higgs" game make this a must-have for those still waiting with bated breath to find out if this historic experiment will finally answer many fundamental questions about the nature of the universe.

You can download the app for free here and see an animated illustration of a proton collision event from the ATLAS Experiment team below.
