The BBC has a nice article about CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I've mentioned the LHC before, and what we expect will be its central role in providing insights into some of the biggest questions in particle physics and cosmology. The BBC article provides a summary of the magnitude of the construction effort, discusses the roles played by the different experiments and talks a little about the physics we hope will come out. I hope you have fun reading it. I'll leave you with the beginning paragraph, which is short, simple and sensible, at least to me.
"We are at a point where experiments must guide us, we cannot make progress without them," explains Jim Virdee, a particle physicist at Imperial College London. "We must wait for the data to speak."
