Large Hadron Collider breaks new record only days after it reopens

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

Tea Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — which is operated by the European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) — is the world’s largest particle accelerator and consists of a 17-mile (27 kilometers) ring of superconducting magnets buried between the border of France and Switzerland. LHC uses these magnets to accelerate and smash together protons and ions to almost the speed of light, to help scientists understand particle physics, including the origin of mass, dark matter and antimatteraccording to CERN.
