Where the World Wide Web (WWW) was born

Earlier this week, I visited CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland. At the start of the exhibition, I was quite impressed to read that we are made of so-called particles that are 12 billion years old.



I also noticed that only about 20 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee (photo below) invented the World Wide Web (WWW) while working as a scientist at CERN. You can read more about that here.
