Scientists work to re-create the Big Bang

Some of the world's brightest minds are working to re-create the Big Bang to figure out just how the universe was formed.

Scientists at the European Council for Nuclear Research are hard at work on the world's most powerful particle accelerator.

The machine would force particles to smash into each other almost at the speed of light in an underground ring 17 miles long.

When the particle beam accelerator gets to the speed as planned, 600 million collisions will occur every seconds.

Scientists say they will study the after-effects to try and figure out how the big bang occurred.
