Latest CERN Stories
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Friday a further delay to the resumption of the vast particle collider designed to stimulate the â€œBig Bangâ€.
Scientist say it will cost more than $20 million to repair Europe's Large Hadron Collider. The European Organization for Nuclear Research said the repairs could take until at least next summer to complete, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday. The machine, designed to smash protons together at huge speeds, took nearly 20 years to complete at a cost of $6.4 billion, was shut down in September because of a badly soldered electrical connection in one of its super-cooled magnet sections.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) reported on Monday that it will cost about 25 million francs, or $21 million, in order to make critical repairs on the worldâ€™s largest atom smasher.
When it is fully up and running, the four massive detectors on the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN particle-physics lab near Geneva are expected to produce up to 15 million gigabytes, aka 15 petabytes, of data every year.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) officially celebrated its experiment to discover the origins of the universe.
A spokesperson from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) told reporters on Friday that it would likely take most of the winter to repair problems that led to the forced shutdown of its atom smasher before resuming activity in spring.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Thursday that the forced shutdown of its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) last month was caused by a faulty electrical connection between two of the acceleratorâ€™s magnets.
Here's what didn't happen on Sept. 10th: The world did not end. Switching on the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, did not trigger the creation of a microscopic black hole.
CERN, the worldâ€™s largest particle physics lab that created the Worldwide Web, exhibited its newest development on Friday: a computer network allowing some 7,000 scientists in 33 countries to connect and share data and processing power.
Scientists say they were more surprised by the overwhelming success of the world's largest atom smasher on its opening day than by the troubles it later developed.
