Physicists Need New Particle Collider For Research


Physicists are requesting a new particle after the Large Hadron Collider cannot perform the necessary functions needed for further research into the building blocks of the universe, according to The Economist.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is one of the most scientifically advanced pieces of machinery in human history. It is located north of Geneva, close to the border of France and Switzerland. The machine works by accelerating beams of protons in opposite direction at the speed of light until they collide, converting energy.

The machine is owned by a research firm called CIRN. The firm believes that there is more unexplained material to discover and they are eager to find out. The LHC will still be operational for another twenty years, but a more powerful machine is needed to reach these undiscovered areas.

The Large Hadron Collider is not sufficient for physicists attempting to study the building blocks of the universe.
