The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which cost $3.8 billion to build, is going to be used to try and replicate what happened milliseconds after the big bang.

For those who do not know, the big bang is believed to be the starting point of our universe.

The hope is that by doing this experiment, they will be able to understand how the universe formed. and is also being known as the Big Bang experiment.

For the test, they will be sending a fire beam through a 17-mile circular tube French-Swiss border.

They will then fire another beam on the opposite side to try and re-create what happened just after the big bang.
