It's official: After a long 27 month hiatus for upgrades and a 2 month restart, the world's largest particle accelerator is back in the particle collision business.
After a two-year upgrade, the Large Hadron Collider smashed particles at record-breaking energy levels.
For the first time since the Large Hadron Collider was shut down in 2013 for its 2 year hiatus for a power upgrade, the world's most powerful particle accelerator has restarted particle collisions.
WATCH LIVE: Tonight, at 7 p.m. EDT, The Perimeter Institute will be hosting a special lecture by British physicist Jon Butterworth who works on the ATLAS detector at the LHC.
The problem electrical short at one of the Large Hadron Collider's electromagnets has been fixed, clearing the way for protons to begin zooming around the 17 mile ring as early as this weekend.
Unfortunately, an electrical glitch has put the breaks on the Large Hadron Collider's grand reboot this week -- but it's not the end of the world.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and most complex machine ever constructed, so it can be hard to fully appreciate its scale.
The hunt for the source of dark matter is one of the most hotly anticipated searches of our time and the Higgs boson might be able to light the way to a possible dark matter discovery.
