    CERN Turns On Large Hadron Collider

    Two years after being turned off for upgrades, the particle physics experimental machine known as the Large Hadron Collider is back online and ready for new research. The miles-long facility located under the French and Swiss border is expected to produce significant new data, such as evidence of subatomic “dark matter” particles that make up the 27 percent of the universe. The facility, run by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), produces collisions at a much higher voltage than ever before, pushing science to the boundaries of physics.
