The European nuclear research agency collides two high-power proton beams early this morning, marking the beginning of this year's Large Hadron Collider physics data collection.
The recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has become the world's most powerful particle accelerator, after setting a new record for beam intensity.
Large Hadron Collider circulates beams at 3.5 tera-electron-volts, bringing it closer to CERN's goal of conducting research into fundamental physics.
CERN is set to run its giant particle collider for 18 to 24 months at a modest power level as it continues to check out the machinery.
After a delay from an electrical hiccup, researchers at CERN successfully operate the Large Hadron Collider and see "beautiful tracks" of colliding protons.
The nuclear research agency says it's satisfied that the Large Hadron Collider needs no more repairs and can get back to where it left off last fall.
The world's largest physics experiment has seen a series of setbacks since September, but CERN is determined that "the LHC will run next year."
Chance of discovering new physical phenomena with Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator leads CERN to postpone energy-doubling upgrade.
Squeezing more bunches of protons onto the particle accelerator's beams increases the data-gathering rate--and the odds the Higgs boson will turn up at CERN.
The LHC today set the record for the strongest ever successful particle collisions within a laboratory environment, and the record for number of exclamation marks in a tweet
