Particle-Smashing Large Hadron Collider Up and Running

The Large Hadron Collider is back up and running after taking a two year break following the discovery of the Higgs boson particle, one of the most elementary known particles in the universe. On Sunday, scientists sent two beams of particles in opposite directions around the accelerator’s 17 mile circumference. The two year break had been spent upgrading the Hadron Collider so that beams of particles will be able to smash together at nearly twice the energy level that was possible before. This will open up…
