The Large Hadron Collider is back in search of new physics

Ready, steady, go: the race to discover new physics returns today as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reignites, firing heavy ion particles at each other at 99.99% of the speed of light to recreate a state of primordial matter we haven’t seen since live After the Big Bang.

The Large Hadron Collider It is the world’s longest and most powerful particle accelerator, shooting beams of subatomic particles around a 17-mile (27 kilometer) underground ring near Geneva, on the Franco-Swiss border. Since the LHC originally came online in 2010, its experiments have produced 3,000 scientific papers, with a range of results including the most well-known one: the discovery of Higgs boson.
