The Large Hadron Collider concludes first 3 year run and will continue in 2015

February 20th, 2013 §


The LHC is the worlds largest and highest energy particle accelerator. It was built by CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) and used by physicists to study the smallest known sub atomic particles which are the fundamental building blocks of all things. The 17 mile long particle accelerator is located near Geneva, Switzerland. It has helped test different theories of particle physics, high-energy physics, supersymmetric theories, and most importantly prove the existence of the Higgs boson! It will undergo maintenance and upgrades for the next two years and resume proton to proton collisions in 2015. -Rick Viegas
