The Large Hadron Collider, the world’s biggest atom smasher, is to start its delayed high-energy operation to hunt for the “God Particle”.

Scientists at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (Cern), which operates the £5bn atom-smasher on the Franco-Swiss border, are expected to restart high-energy operations on Tuesday morning.

Their aim is to steer speeding atomic particles into head-on collisions in a bid to mimic the conditions seen moments after the Big Bang.

Physicists also hope it will ultimately allow them to find the elusive Higgs boson, the so-called “God particle” that theoretically gives mass to other subatomic particles, and thus everything in the universe.

The collider was first launched in September 2008 amid an international fanfare that saw the world’s media invited to make sense of the epic experiment, conducted in a 16.8 mile (27km) tunnel 320ft below ground.
