CERN began public testing a new version of the popular volunteer computing project LHC@home, which lets science-minded nerds simulate the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)'s high-energy proton collisions. These volunteers will help physicists search for new particles that may provide insights into our universe's origin, like the fabled Higgs boson.
LHC@home is just one of the numerous projects and events organized by the Citizen Cyberscience Centre, which is a partnership between CERN, UNITAR, and the University of Geneva. Its goal is to promote volunteer-based science.
