The Large Hadron Collider began an unprecedented experiment

The world’s largest particle accelerator begins a new phase of experiments. According to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the preparatory work for the new LHC launch went according to plan.

A team of scientists will increase the energy of the two beams up to 6.5 trillion electron volts. On May 20, during the preparation of a particle accelerator to a new stage of work reached a record collision energy - 13 teraelectronvolt.

The previous record was 8 TeV has been made in the year 2012, shortly before the closing of a two-year upgrade. With the LHC proved the existence of the Higgs boson, or “God particle.” Due to this in 2013, and Peter Higgs, Francois Engler received the Nobel Prize. They theoretically substantiated the existence of a particle in 1964.

Large Hadron Collider accelerates heavy particles (hadrons), composed of fundamental particles (quarks). It allows rays, consisting of billions of protons to move from 99.9% the speed of light in different directions. Using powerful magnets rays are bent so that their collision occurs, the result of which is a powerful releases of energy. These clashes are fixed at points 27-km corridor, equipped with various sensors.

One TeV - it is about the energy of motion of a flying mosquito. However, its emission takes place in the space of a million million times smaller than a mosquito. With such a high density of particles and broken.

The planned capacity of the collider is 14 trillion electron volts. At this rate, researchers hope to go next year. The construction of the LHC was spent 6 billion. Dollars.
