LHC – operating until the end of 2012

LHC is the largest and most energetic particle accelerator in existence.

We know that the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is the largest particle accelerator and the one with the highest energy in existence. It is located near the French-Swiss border, close to Geneva. The main focus of this particle accelerator is to obtain data on particle beam collisions at very high speeds.
In Geneva, it was announced that the famous and expected particle accelerator, LHC, will be working perfectly until the end of 2012 and that after this period, the particle accelerator will undergo technical maintenance to operate at high energies in 2014

. from the European research center, Cern, that for the period between 2011 and 2012 the accelerator will work with low energies, 3.5 TeV ( 3.5 teraelectron-volt).

In a statement by CERN’s director of accelerators, Steve Mayer, “If the LHC continues this way and performs as well in 2011 as it did in 2010, it will be an exciting year.”

It was in the team’s interest that the “Large Hadron Collider” be in operation by the end of 2011 and only in the following year would the technical pause come so that it could work with high energies, of 7 TeV.

As the team of scientists got a “good run” of the accelerator in 2010, they decided to rethink the break date by a year to gather more data.
