Atom-Smasher One Collision Closer to Understanding Matter

Atom-Smasher One Collision Closer to Understanding Matter
By crashing two proton beams together at more force than ever before,
the Large Hadron Collider begins its bid to learn details about the
fundamentals of space and matter.

THE GIST:
  • The LHC smashed two proton beams together with more force than ever.
  • The collisions start a new era of science for understanding theoretical particles.
  • Further research could explain how matter is made up.
"The world's largest atom smasher has set a record for high-energy collisions by crashing two proton beams at three times more force than ever before."

This is such exciting work. Imagine the possibilities that could open up with the discovery of the "God Particle." You have no idea how much I love this kind of stuff.

  1. I was very sad when the operation had to be stopped due to some problem in its working but still i am waiting eagerly to know how our planet was made.
