CERN Will Fire Up Its Hadron Collider July 5th, What Does This Mean?


The CERN laboratory has been the subject of multiple different theories throughout the last decade and rightfully so.

CERN which is short for Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire has been conducting experiments by smashing particles together at tremendous speeds and energies.

CERN’s world’s largest Hadron Collider previously was used to confirm the existence of the Higgs Boson which is also known as the God Particle.

For the last year, CERN has been shut down but now the research center will conduct a new experiment on July 5th  and attempt a new energy record of 13.6 trillion electronvolts.

Some users on the internet believe CERN is attempting to open up a dark portal in another dimension but the scientific community has denied these claims.

Swiss Info had more on the story:

The restart of the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN laboratory near Geneva coincides with the 10th anniversary of the celebrated discovery by its researchers of the Higgs boson, a long-sought fundamental particle that gives mass to other subatomic components of the universe.

Scientists hope that increasing the energy and frequency with which protons collide in the LHC’s experiments, after accelerating almost to the speed of light in a 27km underground ring, will provide evidence for “new physics” — fundamental forces and particles that go beyond the so-called standard model, to which the Higgs boson gave a finishing touch.


Thousands of physicists work on the LHC at the CERN headquarters close to the Swiss-French border and remotely from universities around the world.

Among other questions, they are hoping to discover why matter rather than anti-matter dominates the universe and to uncover the nature of “dark matter” — invisible to all scientific instruments so far developed — which is known to be more plentiful than conventional matter.

Here’s an inside look at what CERN’s laboratory looks like:
