CERN Tests Large Hadron Collider at Record Energy to Break Protons, Achieves Breakthrough (Photos)

CERN achieved a breakthrough on Wednesday night when protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV for the first time, paving the way for the next round in early June in search of the dark matter or God’s particle. The set-up of the collimators, which absorb stray particles were adjusted in colliding-beam conditions ...

CERN Restarts Large Hadron Collider After 2 Years, What Next?

Two years after the shutdown of its epoch-making Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the God Particle hunt by CERN resumed on Sunday at 10:41 AM local time. The physics particle search tunnel was closed for refurbishment after it found the first instance of Higgs Boson particle, known as God’s Particle in popular parlance in 2012. With a proton beam back in ...

CERN to Resume LHC Operation with Doubled Energy Today

CERN, which was able to produce epoch-making anti-matter or God’s Particle will resume its operations with its new refurbished Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on Monday, March 23, 2015 after a gap of over two years for maintenance. The renovated LHC will now double its accelerator for running at a collision energy of 13 TeV, nearly double its last time energy ...

CERN All Set to Relaunch LHC for God Particle Second Run Experiments from March 23

CERN, the particle research giant in Geneva that had shut down in 2013 its epoch-making Large Hadron Collider which was able to produce the dark matter or God’s Particle, has announced new and reburbished LHC now. For almost three years the LHC has gone through maintenace with hundreds of engineers and technicians working on consolidating and strengthening the accelerator in ...

Not Higgs Boson or God Particle, But Could Be Some Other, Say Physicists

After the hype over discovering the so-called ‘God Particle’ or Higgs Boson, recent revelations do not debunk the possibility that CERN has discovered the Higgs particle in 2012 but say it is equally possible that it is a different kind of particle. An international research team has scrutinized the existing scientific data from CERN about the newfound particle and published ...
