Large Hadron Collider scientists hail most powerful collisions

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is back and smashing particles at higher speed than ever before, exciting scientists with its upgraded potential.

The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s longest and most powerful particle accelerator, zipping subatomic particles through a 17-mile-long (27 kilometer) loop underneath Geneva at speeds nearing that of light. Already the collider has led to some 3,000 scientific papers since beginning operations in 2010; now, with new upgrades, it’s poised to showcase new insights, team members say.
