During the civil-engineering work, the Large Hadron Collider will continue to operate, with two long technical stop periods that will allow preparations and installations to be made for high luminosity alongside yearly regular maintenance activities.

"First of all, we told them that our conclusions about the Higgs were only tentative and needed further confirmation, then we explained that even if we had found it, it was not THE Higgs Boson, but only A Higgs Boson, and there might be a lot more of them that we should keep looking for; and then we told them that this is, after all, a large hadron collider, and we really ought to be trying to collide some small hadrons too, which could lead to the discovery of a smaller Higgs Boson, which would take up less space than the Higgs Boson we've got already, thus leaving room for any further discoveries that might be made in the fullness of time."
The experiments investigate the reactions triggered by the collision of high-energy protons in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Randall (particle physics and cosmology, Harvard U.) surveys cutting edge theoretical physics, focusing on research enabled by the Large Hadron Collider. It is intended for a non-specialist audience and makes many connections between this research and how thinking scientifically works.
Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 01, 2011 --(PR.com)-- In the early 21st century, scientists and engineers began the construction of the now-famous device known as the "Large Hadron Collider," which is a giant testing machine utilized to accelerate particles in a vacuum.
The Large Hadron Collider at Cern has set a new world record for beam intensity at a hadron collider when it collided beams with a luminosity of 4.67 x [10.sup.32] [cm.sub.-2] [s.sup.-1].
