Companies help Malaysian automobile manufacturer Proton Holdings Berhad in its globalisation plans

On Monday, November 30, 2009, the CERN Large Hadron Collider, in Europe, sent two beams of protons around its accelerator track at an energy of 1.18 tera-electron volts for a new world record, beating out the previous record holder Fermilab in the United States.

On Monday, November 23, 2009, the scientists at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider circulated—for the first time—two beams simultaneously in its gigantic accelerator, giving them a chance to look for sub-particle collisions among its near-speed-of-light protons.

Large Hadron Collider to start up at half power

CERN announces that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will start up in November 2009 at about 3.5 teraelectron-volt (TeV), well off its top energy level but at least it will allow scientists to use the world’s largest particle accelerator/collider.

Repairs to CERN's LHC will cost $21 million

Because a soldered electrical connection was made incorrectly to CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, a transformer broke and a bunch of circuits between two magnets was destroyed. CERN has to cough up at least US$21 million (about 25 million francs) for the repairs.

CERN scientists successfully circulated beam one, the clockwise beam, and, thereafter, beam two, the anti-clockwise beam, on Wednesday, September 10, 2008. The following week involved fixing some problems before proceeding with the next stage.

According to new and updated information and data provided since the 2003 Safety Report, the 2008 Safety Report supports the conclusions that the LHC is safe. The world’s largest particle accelerator is on the forefront of answering some important mysteries of our universe.

On Saturday, March 15, 2008, the Breeze-M (Briz-M) upper stage of a Russian Proton rocket failed on its second burn, which left its Americom-14 (AMC-14) communications satellite useless in space. The satellite would have provided home services for DISH Network customers.
