A new set of record was reached by the most powerful and sophisticated atom particle smasher ever built yet. The new development has scientists believing that they will be able to succeed in discovering whatever secrets that the universe has been hiding from man since the beginning of time.
The 17-mile tunnel found under the border of France and Switzerland is run by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The Large Hadron Collider, that’s how it’s officially called, has been upgraded for two years to prepare it for its new science mission. A total of $150 million was spent during the two-year maintenance job after which Some test runs were done to determine how ready it might be to perform the next missions..
During the test, it showed an amazing power almost approximating its full potential. It broke the the 13 terra-electronvolts level, one shy from its full capacity.
Physicists will be making some adjustments during the test runs of the Large Hadron Collider or LHC. All parts will be inspected one by one which include the 9,600 electromagnets and metal blocks known as the collimators responsible in capturing wayward protons. It’s expected to blast approximately a billion of protons.
Various experiments are going to be performed starting June using the power of 13 TeV to start gathering data as LHC is expected to perform same way as it did in its previous assignments where it discovered the Higgs boson article also known as the “God particle. This was in 2012.
The higher energies will see to it that the LHC will perform even better during the experiment proper. The target is to find the heavier particles that exists in theory but has never been actually discovered. Another mission is to try to get some information about the hypothesis of supersymmetry or that anti matter equivalent for existing matters.
