Designing A Particle Accelerator Requires Creativity

Particle accelerators almost seem straight out of a science-fiction movie, but they're the real deal. This is a machine that is designed to either take atoms with electrons stripped off (ions) or protons, and give them energy to build up speed. This usually happens using electric and magnetic fields. Find out why this is helpful, and how these machines are designed in the videos below.
