Volunteer astronomer Bill Logan will give a presentation at 1 p.m. April 6 in the Sunriver Public Library’s meeting room about how the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) uses a large hadron collider to discover new particles that make up the universe.

Located in Geneva, Switzerland, the CERN LHC is the world’s largest particle accelerator and has a ring that is 27 kilometers long. Logan visited the CERN LHC in 2012.
