Large Hadron Collider hits world record as beams power up for 'end game' in hunt for God particle

3 years agoNews : The Coming Crisis

The LHC is now scheduled to run until the end of 2012, when it will go into its first long shutdown. Scientists are confident the Higgs will be found or ruled out before that point. Early this morning, two high energy proton beams crossed at the Large Hadron Collider, breaking the world record for energy in such collisions.The 8 TeV (teraelectronvolt) collisions mark the start of the 'end game' for the Hadron Collider's hunt for the Higgs boson, the ‘God particle’ that would complete Albert Einstein's theory of the universe.
