The Large Hadron Collider reboots to push physics to the limit

Scientists overseeing Earth’s largest particle accelerator turned it on for the first time in three years this weekend to solve some of physics’ biggest mysteries.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the powerful particle accelerator located at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, restarted on Friday (April 22) after a three-year shutdown for maintenance and upgrades. The reactivation kicked off what scientists are calling Run 3, the LHC’s third science run, which will run experiments until 2024.
