CERN's recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has collided two proton beams at a record energy of 13 teraelectronvolts, meaning experiments are about to resume
CERN’s Large Hadron Collider — the massive particle accelerator that found evidence of the celebrated Higgs boson back in 2011 — is back online after a brief two-year hiatus and a $150 million upgrade. That means high-energy protonsShow More Summary
Last Wednesday night, a new record was set at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) when particles were smashed together with vastly more energy than ever before

As the Large Hadron Collider, humanity’s most colossal science experiment, approaches its relaunch date, test runs are already making waves. On Thursday, the unimaginably massive machine broke its own record, artificially creating more energy on a subatomic scale than ever before.
Answers to some very basic questions that you might be asking as the LHC sees its first collisions at higher energies than ever before.
So far, the world does not appear to have ended.
CERN scientists set off particle collisions at full power for the first time late Wednesday
Late yesterday, CERN scientists made history by using the most powerful particle accelerator in the world to hurl beams of protons together at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV (tera-electronvolts) — a full 5 TeV higher than the previous standard. Read more...
The Large Hadron Collider broke its own record again in 13-trillion-electronvolt test collisions. Today engineers at the Large Hadron Collider successfully collided several tightly packed bunches of particles at 13 trillion electronvolts. Show More Summary
Well, they've finally done it, and so far there's no black hole originating in Geneva. The researchers set up the test LHC collisions at 13 TeV in a way that protects both the machine and the detectors from stray particles from the beam.
The world’s largest particle smasher broke the record for energy levels late Wednesday in a test run after a two-year upgrade, CERN announced Thursday. “Last night, protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV (teraelectronvolts) for the...
Matter and antimatter should have wiped each other out at the universe's birth. The upgraded Large Hadron Collider aims to find why matter alone survived
All those super low energy jets that the LHC cannot see? LHC can still see them. Hi Folks, Particle colliders like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are, in a sense, very powerful microscopes. The higher the collision energy, the smaller distances we can study. Using less than 0.01% of the total LHC energy (13 TeV),
The Standard Model of particle physics stands its ground again. As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) embarks on its second run, a new study published Wednesday in the journal Nature combines data from two previous experiments from theShow More Summary
Data collected from the world's most powerful particle accelerator, which restarted last month, shows long-sought after signs of particle decay, predicted in the Standard Model of Physics but until now unseen.
Smashing protons together in search of strange particles, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva say they’ve discovered signs of particle decays that have long been predicted, but have never before been seen.
Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, have combined their results and observed a previously unseen subatomic process.
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have just announced the detection of a rare particle decay “harder to find than the famous Higgs particle.” The strange B meson is certainly a lot less famous than the Higgs boson, but it also has an important role to play in the Standard Model of particle physics.

A joint result from the CMS and LHCb experiments precludes or limits several theories of new particles or forces. Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN have combined their results and observed a previously unseen subatomic...Show More Summary
