His Majesty King Philippe of Belgium Visits the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN).

belgianOn Wednesday, May 21, 2014, His Majesty King Philippe of Belgium visited the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland.

According to the official website for CERN the research laboratory was established in 1952 with:

“…the mandate of establishing a world-class fundamental physics research organization in Europe. At that time, pure physics research concentrated on understanding the inside of the atom, hence the word ‘nuclear’.

Today, our understanding of matter goes much deeper than the nucleus, and CERN’s main area of research is particle physics – the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and the forces acting between them. Because of this, the laboratory operated by CERN is often referred to as the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.”

During today’s visit His Majesty met with various Belgian researchers working at CERN, and was informed about the results of experiments with the ‘Large Hadron Collider’ (LHC).
