Yesterday, the world's most powerful particle accelerator began its second act. After two years of upgrades and repairs, proton beams once again circulated around the Large Hadron Collider, located at the CERN laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.
Last month, a new superconducting magnet reached its design field of 11.5 Tesla at a temperature nearly as cold as outer space. It is the first successful twin-aperture accelerator magnet made of niobium-3-tin in the world.
Over the weekend, the huge Large Hadron Collider—the world’s most powerful particle accelerator and collider—became even more powerful. After a two year hiatus in research to perform upgrades, the LHC is once again up and running, and...Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France, is nearly set to begin its first particle beam tests. This is one of the most beautiful man-made objects I’ve ever seen. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider was instrumental in the discovery of the Higgs Boson
Following two years of “intense maintenance and consolidation,” the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)--one of the world’s most prominent and powerful particle colliders--has finally restarted, the European Organization for Nuclear Research...Show More Summary
After a two year upgrade, the world's most powerful particle collider has protons running through it again, beginning a ramp-up to its highest energy ever
The Large Hadron Collider circulates the first beam of Run 2. Earlier today, the world’s most powerful particle accelerator began its second act. After two years of upgrades and repairs, proton beams once again circulated around theShow More Summary
Scientists at Europe’s physics research center CERN on Sunday restarted their “Big Bang” Large Hadron Collider (LHC), embarking on a bid to probe into the “dark universe” they believe lies beyond the visible one. CERN reported that particle beams were successfully...
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland, underwent a number of upgrades, including a doubling of the energy with which it can smash protons together.
"Operators will check all systems before increasing energy of the beams."
Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have restarted the Large Hadron Collider following a two-year break for a refit, Reuters reports.
Giant atom smasher in Europe fires up after two-year shutdown, with scientists promising more violent particle crashes this time
For the first time since 2013, protons are swirling around the Large Hadron Collider's 16.8-mile loop, as CERN brings its baby back online after a two-year, $150 million rebuild. With the "God particle" now under its belt, CERN is hoping for bigger and better things out of LHC 2....
Someone at the BBC is excited about the restart of the Large Hadron Collider. Newcastle got me for a second. Like a glove! The steaks have never been higher. Rebel Bass No wonder people are afraid of the dentist Where’s Wally : The Final Search. Fun for a cop calling in the plate. My mom […]
The revamped Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the monstrous underground atom smasher that hurls particles at near light speed, will turn back on this weekend after two years. The LHC already revolutionized physics with the discovery of the Higgs boson. Show More Summary
The final contenders collide. Your vote crowns the best piece of physics equipment in Physics Madness! It’s the ultimate showdown: the Large Hadron Collider vs. the Dark Energy Camera. Everyone's favorite particle collider will take on underdog DECam, which rallied support to take down the famed Hubble Space Telescope in the last round. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to be restarted over the weekend after a two-year hiatus, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, said Thursday.
