Large Hadron Collider Comes Back With A (Big) Bang – March 2015?

This month the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the European particle-physics lab in Switzerland, begins functioning again after a significant £97 million (US$149 million) upgrade–this time running at about twice its previous energy. The LHC sends protons racing toward one another at nearly the speed of light. The collision splits them into smaller, very short-lived particles that are recorded on highly sophisticated detectors for later analysis. The LHC is the largest machine ever built and was responsible for the discovery of the elusive Higgs boson, the particle that creates a field that confers mass onto other particles.
