Large Hadron Collider(LHC), world’s most powerful and largest machine, made for particle accelerating purpose has started to operate after four months of hiatus from the winter break.

LHC built by CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Research has targeted to collect more data this year than in the year 2017.

The break in operation of LHC was to upgrade and maintain the machine. Technicians of CERN fixed the systems and made crucial improvements for advancing the capability of the machine.

Masaya Ishino from the University of Tokyo who is ATLAS Run Coordinator said, “During the winter shutdown, teams worked to reinforce systems across the data-taking chain: from the detector front-end to the data processing.”

Large Hadron Collider is a sophisticated machine built to accelerate the particles at nearly the speed of light and the properties of the particles and collisions are minutely studied.

More than 10,000 scientists from more than 100 countries are working at CERN to unravel the mysteries of the universe.
