CERN Supercollider Will be Smashing Atoms for Three Years Straight

The CERN supercollider on May 28th ran at a record 13TEV  which is insane.  Now they started back up at the LHC and may be running it for a while…like 3 years straight.  Here is more on what is happening at CERN:

Physicists now expect the particle collider to run non-stop for the next 3 years. We are in a new era of high-energy particle physics where, for the first time, we don’t exactly know what we’ll find.

“With the LHC back in the collision-production mode, we celebrate the end of two months of beam commissioning,” said CERN Director of Accelerators and Technology Frédérick Bordry in a press release. “It is a great accomplishment and a rewarding moment for all of the teams involved in the work performed during the long shutdown of the LHC, in the powering tests and in the beam commissioning process. All these people have dedicated so much of their time to making this happen.”
