CERN's LHSee, a Large Hadron Collider app, let's Android users hunt the Higgs Boson on mobile technology — all from the palm of their hands or a tablet computer.
The app was created by the University of Oxford and gives Android users the opportunity to watch all the collisions taking place from the Large Hadron Collider.
It's amazing to see that you can pick out the different individual proton collisions, Dr. Alan Barr of the University of Oxford said in a statement.
Scientists working with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva are working on one of the biggest experiments in the world. They are seeking answers to some fundamental questions about the nature of the Universe, the origin of mass, the structure of space and time, and what was the early universe like.
An app like the LHSee bring the world's highest engery particle smasher into the palms, lap or computer table of the ordinary man all through the use of a Google Android operating system.
Besides getting a front row seat to live collision events happening thousands of miles across the world, Android users also get educational resources and allows users to interact with the collision events in full 3D graphics.
Through playing the Hunt the Higgs game, curious users can find out how the various parts of the detector works and also be able to identify the different types of collisions taking place.
The app is offered in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.
Let the Higgs hunting begin. Download the free app from the Google Android Marketplace.
