Short answer: they accelerate subatomic particles to almost light speed and smash them into atoms and learn about the stuff that atoms are made of.

I knew it wasn't an overhead view, but had no clue what it was and that was the first thing that came to mind. I like to participate even if I am without a clue The second answer was a legitimate one from my hubby.

The Large Hadron Collider came on-line this year, huge deal as far as physics goes. They haven't run it a full power yet. The thing has a 27 mile circumference.

Some wing-nut fears were that this thing could create a black hole that would swallow the Earth.
