In this March 30, 2010 file picture the globe of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, is illuminated outside Geneva, Switzerland. The world's largest and most powerful atom smasher goes into a two-year hibernation in March 2013, aiming to reach maximum energy levels that may lead to more stunning discoveries after hunting down the so-called "God particle." But physicists at the European Center for Nuclear Research, known by its French acronym CERN, won't exactly be idle as the $10 billion proton collider goes on hiatus for maintenance and retooling -- in preparation for unlocking more mysteries. There are still reams more data to sift through since the July 2012 discovery of a new subatomic particle called a Higgs boson and promises a new realm of understanding in subatomic science.
