Large Hadron Collider breaks new record just days after reopening

After a three-year hiatus, the world’s most powerful particle accelerator is back in business and already breaking records.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — which is operated by European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) — is the world’s largest particle accelerator and consists of a 27-kilometer ring of superconducting magnets buried between the border of France and Switzerland. The LHC uses these magnets to accelerate and crush protons and ions at nearly the speed of light, to help scientists understand particle physics, including the origin of mass, dark matter and antimatteraccording CERN.
