Big physics machine rumbles to life after major upgrade
The world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator, which has granted scientists a look at the beginnings of our universe, was just granted a new beginning. Continue reading ? The post A reactivated Large Hadron Collider set to explore ‘uncharted territory’ appeared first on PBS NewsHour.
After a two-year shutdown, the Large Hadron Collider is up and running again, looking to probe new mysteries of physics.
CERN has brought the massive super collider back online after two years of upgrades. Now the search for supersymmetry begins in earnest.
And your 2015 winning physics machine is… The Dark Energy Camera! The plucky DECam and heavily favorited Large Hadron Collider beat out 14 solid competitors to make it to the final round, but only one physics machine could emerge victorious. Show More Summary
Someone got a little too excited about the Large Hadron Collider restarting this past weekend. “The most powerful particle accelerator in the world” is back in operation after two years of maintenance, and the BBC had a minor, yet unfortunate typo in their report on the device. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the giant underground particle accelerator that brought us the Higgs boson, restarted on Easter Sunday (April 5). The LHC laid dormant for two years while it was retrofitted with upgrades, but on Sunday at 10:41 a.m. Show More Summary
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."
