The LHC, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, reproduces conditions similar to those that existed immediately after the Big Bang.
The LHC is more powerful now than it was before the overhaul.
Scientists are very optimistic that the LHC restart will enable them to make new discoveries to understand the existence of universe.
The rise in power of the LHC has increased the hopes of researchers to make new breakthroughs to understand the reason behind the formation of the universe and also to understand why everything in this universe has mass by studying fundamental particles, the building blocks of all matter, and the forces that control them.
In the collider two particle beams collide with each other coming in opposite direction at nearly speed of light.
The Large Hadron Collider or LHC was used to prove the existence of Higgs Boson, which confers mass and is also known as god particle.
The evidence of the Higgs Boson meant confirmation for the fundamental particle that enables all other particles in the Standard Model of Physics to have matter.
CERN researchers are geared up to restart the LHC to gather data from massive collisions slated to take place from about 3.30pm on Wednesday.
Alberto Pace, who leads the Data and Storage Services group within the IT Department said, “During Run 1, we were storing 1 gigabyte-per-second, with the occasional peak of 6 gigabytes-per-second. For Run 2, what was once our “peak” will now be considered average, and we believe we could even go up to 10 gigabytes-per-second if needed.”
With the LHS providing CERN researchers a chance to once again conduct experiments, chances are high that results with help to remove the lid from many long hidden mysteries behind the existence of universe.
