The system has passed the prototype stage, and is on course for a launch in 2018 pending further development and testing.
“The staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes.
If successful a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy books too.”

According to Duncan Forgan, a researcher at the University of St. Andrews, it has. He has recently wrote about an object called 3753 Cruithe, which he refers to as the “second moon”.
The difference between the moon we all became to know and this object is that it cannot be seen with only our eyes, but it takes a powerfull device to be able to perceive it. Here is a picture of the object, taken by the telescope at Powell Observatory.

So according to Wikipedia, the largest photograph in the world is one of the Moon’s surface.
It shows the Moon’s Northen polar region and it’s a panorama picture, which means that is composed by more than one photo. It’s actually composed of over 10 000 photos and they are taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera between 2010 through 2013. It got the stunning 681 GIGAPIXELS (681 billion pixels!).
Check out the picture and the remaining largest highest- res photos in the world at the Wikipedia link above. Enjoy!
There was a lot of talk about if this particle really exists or not, and untill 2012 it was unknown, when, in Cern, scientists have discovered it.
Basically, what the ‘God Particle’ does, is that it gives mass to particles.
