Latest Collider Stories
Scientists working on the world's biggest accelerator have restarted an experiment to recreate "Big Bang" conditions in an effort to better understand the origins of the universe.
The LArge Hadron Collider, which was shut down after its inauguration in September 2008 amid technical faults, restarted on Friday, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said.
According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to be restarted by this weekend after over a year of repairs.
Engineers have successfully injected beams of particles into two sections of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), marking the first time particle beams have been inside the LHC since it was shut down in September 2008.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment is now more frigid than deep space, making it one of the coldest locations in the Universe.
Controlling huge electromagnetic forces that have the potential to destroy the next generation of particle accelerators is the subject of a new paper by a University of Manchester physicist.
After a widely publicized helium leak shut down the Large Hadron Collider last year, engineers began installing an early warning system they hope will prevent any similar problems.
The Large Hadron Collider will not become a white elephant, despite having operated just one week in the year since its debut, scientists in Switzerland said. The world's most powerful atom smasher began operation a year ago this month near Geneva amid great expectations it would recreate the conditions of the universe at its earliest infancy.
Switzerland's troubled Large Hadron Collider is expected to restart in November at half-speed and reach full capacity in 2011, scientists said. The world's most powerful atom-smasher initially began operating Sept.
The mysteries of the universe will remain unknown for a few months longer after the CERN announcement that the giant particle collider will restart in November.
