CERN particle accelerator back into service – rts.ch

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) restarts the Large Hadron Collider. The world’s largest search machine restarted Friday after more than three years of maintenance and improvement.

The CERN The first two particle beams are expected to send in opposite directions through hadron collider. The underground ring, with a circumference of 27 kilometers, is located on the Franco-Swiss border in Al-Ain, at the gates of Geneva.

The suspension of the world’s most powerful accelerator, which has been on hold since 2019, has been extended due to the pandemic. It must be restarted in several stages.

>> Maintenance and optimization work inside the particle accelerator:

It would take six to eight weeks for the machine to run at full speed, and only then could proton collisions occur again which should reveal knowledge of the fundamental laws of the universe.

simulating the creation of the universe

The particle accelerator makes it possible to simulate the time of the formation of the universe, about 14 billion years ago. During the collision, researchers observe decay processes and gain insight into the smallest components of matter, the elementary particles.

The new calibration of this machine to dissect matter will allow physicists to produce particle collisions at unprecedented energies in just a few months. The large accelerator will also provide the scientific community with more data thanks to the frequent collisions.
