Technology takes on nature in a series of head-to-head battles.
This week I pit nature against technology in a 'higher or lower' comparison. Round one is a battle of temperatures.
In the red corner... The sun's core.
And in the blue corner... The Large Hadron Collider
Round 1) Temperature

However, another scientific fact I learnt a bit later on is that sub-atomic shenanigans can also produce extremely high temperatures. Scientists are always firing atoms and stuff at each other inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), so how does the Sun's temperature compare with some of the experiments at the LHC?
Which is the hottest? The Sun's core, or the hottest temperature recorded at the LHC?
a) The Sun's core
b) Hottest temperature recorded at the Large Hadron Collider
