La beauté est l'

is the acronym for Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucleaire.
It is the site where the LHC experiments are being built.
to have a first-hand opinion on CERN, we refer you to the official site:
CERN for the public
fundamental archetypical cast constituting the base for the creation of
more than 10^89 identical copies of elementary particles during the Big Bang,
the explosive event that formed our Universe. If and when the development
of space technology in combination with biotechnology allows us in the
future to come in contact with other possible civilizations in the
Universe, this diagram could serve as a means of communication of our
level of understanding of the fundamental structure of the world to
creatures that share with us the same physical laws but not the same
planetary, biological, technological or social histories, and obviously
not the same mathematical or alphabetic symbols. It would encode
about the human civilization in the same spirit as the platinum plates
that were sent with spacecrafts Pioneer 10 and 11 in space in the
years 1972-3 and were designed by Carl Sagan.
