Scientists have taken a successful first step towards understanding how the Universe was formed 13 billion years ago.

CERN has released the first graphical images of its Big Bang experiment that aims to find out what happened immediately after the Big Bang and how the Universe was formed, over 13 billion years ago.

The gigantic Large Hadron Collider successfully created a smaller version of the Big Bang by crashing ions against each other, which generated a temperature of over ten trillion degrees.

Over the next 4 weeks, scientists will be analyzing the data gained from the collision of ions, in order to learn more about the Universe’s plasma one-millionth of a second after the Big Bang happened.
