Digital News Report – Europe’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has achieved a record-breaking particle collision with seven-trillion-electronvolt power. This Tuesday’s experiment was three times higher energy levels than previously recorded for the splitting of the atom particles.
The scientists were happy when they received notice of the first collisions occurring. The researchers told the media that it will take time for the data to be gathered and evaluated. The sub-atomic impacts while historic do not yet tell them what the results are and will take time to further investigate the data.
The splitting of atoms into sub-atoms could develop a whole new area of physics. They are hoping to determine how the cosmos came into being by further investigating the big bang theory.
The Large Hadron Collider in Geneva cost around the $10 billion to build it. There has been public concern for safety that the LHC could possibly successfully create a black hole and cause unknown hazard for the Earth. The LHC investigated safety concerns for the black hole potential and according to Wikipedia said that “no conceivable danger” by their LHC Safety Assessment Group. If a black hole would occur it would evaporate extremely quickly.
