Large Hadron Collider (LHC) generates a 'mini-Big Bang'
Dr David Evans: "From conception to design and building this, it's taken about 20 years."
The Large Hadron Collider has successfully created a "mini-Big Bang" by smashing together lead ions instead of protons.
The scientists working at the enormous machine achieved the unique conditions on 7 November.
The experiment created temperatures a million times hotter than at the centre of the Sun.
And no global blackouts or visions of the future.
