CERN is ready to unravel more secrets of the universe, decades after the God particle was discovered

On Tuesday, July 5, the world’s most powerful accelerator at the European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) will be ready to unravel the secrets of the universe’s building blocks once more.

For more than three years, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) had been undergoing upgrades and maintenance.

The LHC will provide proton collisions to experiments at a previously unheard-of energy of 13.6 trillion electron volts (TeV). This marks the start of the LHC’s third run of physics data collection.

A decade after the discovery of the Higgs boson, or God Particle, CERN is preparing for more discoveries. Beams have been circulating in CERN’s accelerator complex since April.

The LHC machine and its injectors were being recommissioned in order to operate with newer, higher-intensity beams.
