On September 9th, Russia started building its own particle accelerator in the town of Dubna outside Moscow. It was dubbed the “younger brother” of Switzerland’s Large Hadron Collider, created by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

The project, nicknamed NIKA and due to be launched in 2016, may reproduce “Big Bang” conditions that gave birth to our Universe and provide ideas of how the Solar system formed.

While Geneva is seeking to discover the smallest known particles, NIKA scientists aim to study the process of these particles’ appearance several billion years ago, which will probably help the mankind unlock some riddles of the Universe.

Interested in the project developed in Russia, the CERN signed a cooperation contract with Moscow.
