Large Hadron Atom Smasher Reaches Near Speed of Light





Scientists celebrated at the world's biggest atom smasher at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva on Tuesday as they started colliding particles at record energy levels mimicking conditions close to the Big Bang, opening a new era in the quest for the secrets of the universe.

The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said it had unleashed the unprecedented bursts of energy on the third attempt, as beams of protons thrust around the 27-kilometre (16.8-mile) accelerator collided at close to the speed of light.

Wow! This is truly amazing isn't it? They made it.. so close to the speed of light!
I really wonder what this implies toward our understanding of our universe concretly.. but even without physics studies I can tell this is a huge step in their research!

Good job guys!
