LHC smashes old collision records

The Large Hadron Collider is now producing about a billion proton-proton collisions per second. The LHC is colliding protons at a faster rate than ever before, approximately 1 billion times per second. Those collisions are adding up: This year alone the LHC has produced roughly the same number of collisions as it did during all of the previous years of operation together.
