CERN sets first particle collision date

Officials at CERN have announced the date in which the beginning of the physics program will begin at the Large Hadron Collider. In other words, the first collisions of two oppositely-directed particle beams with energies of 3.5 TeV per beam will be attempted, for a combined energy of 7 tera-electron volts (TeV).


Published in Energy

On March 19, 2010, CERN's Large Hadron Collider set a new world mark when it circulated two proton beams, each at 3.5 TeV. The next step is to collide these two beams as they go at such tremendous energies. What a collision!
