CERN's Large Hadron Collider has become the world's highest energy particle accelerator, having accelerated its twin beams of protons to an energy of 1.18 TeV in the early hours of the morning. This exceeds the previous world record of 0.98 TeV, which had been held by the US Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory's Tevatron collider since 2001. It marks another important milestone on the road to first physics at the LHC in 2010.
CERN announced this morning that the Large Hadron Collider has broken its own world record for proton beam energy. At just after 5:20 a.m. CET, beams circulated in both directions in the LHC at an energy of 3.5 trillion electron vol... Read Post
