The director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research has invited the pope to CERN's main laboratory in Switzerland. Physicist Rolf Heuer, has been the director for two years. He says the
relationship between the organization and the Vatican is “very good.”
By early 2012, a group of cardinals is expected to visit the nuclear facilities that house the famous “Large Hadron Collider.” The LHC as it's commonly referred to, is an underground instrument used by physicists to study the smallest known particles of the Universe.
Heuer recently took part in a meeting at the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Now he's hoping Benedict XVI will accept his recent invitation. Doing so, he says, would show the good relationship between science and faith.
