Despite the distance, Cornell researchers are actively involved in the cutting-edge particle physics experiments taking place at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.

This Cornell Research story explores the many projects and discoveries Cornell faculty are undertaking as they pursue answers to some of the universe's greatest mysteries.

“The most interesting interactions are often the most rare; they are the highest energy, highest masses, and very unlikely to be produced,” says Julia Thom-Levy, associate professor of physics. “A lot of our field is like needle-in-the-haystack research.”
