Russia's Nica: Big Bang Questions

How Russian scientists try to recreate the making of the universe

The Boson was predicted by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Peter Higgs in 1964 and practically proved in 2012. The discovery was made on the CERN collider in Switzerland. However, Russian scientists are taking it to a new level. The Nuclotron, a Russian state-of-the-art particle booster, is scheduled to be built in 2022. Its goal is to study matter that formed the universe 14 billion years ago, following the Big Bang. Once it’s functional, the data will be analysed at a research centre. The results are expected to be life-changing. So what conclusions are the scientists hoping to get, and how will they affect our daily lives?
