  1. -Large Hadron Collider Working Well at Half Power (New York Times)
      "But for all the euphoria in Geneva these days, the collider is still operating under the cloud of Sept. 19, 2008. That is when the electrical connection between two of the colliderís powerful superconducting electromagnets exploded, turning one sector of the collider ring into a car wreck and shutting down the newly inaugurated machine for more than a year."

      "As a result, the machine is operating at only half power, at 3.5 trillion electron volts per proton instead of the 7 trillion electron volts for which it was designed, so as not to blow out the delicate splices." 11-10

  2. -Scientists Search for Dark Matter With Hadron Collider (PBS.org)
      "The massive particle collider runs in a 17-mile circumference ring under the Switzerland-France border. In 2013, physicists used the high-energy particle smasher to find the elusive Higgs boson. The Higgs boson explained why particles have mass, an idea first proposed in the 1960s."

      "It was a monumental achievement for the field of physics. It was the final piece in the Standard Model of physics, the theory which describes the particles that make up the universe and the forces between them."

      "One mystery physicists hope to unlock in the next phase of experiments is dark matter. Scientists estimate that dark matter makes up 85 percent of the universe, Mike Lamont, operations group leader for CERN, told CNN. Itís invisible, and it would explain effects physicists can observe on radiation and visible matter in the universe." 3-15

  3. Did a Time-Traveling Bird Sabotage the Collider? (Time.com)
      "While most scientists would write off the event as a freak accident, two esteemed physicists have formulated a theory that suggests an alternative explanation: perhaps a time-traveling bird was sent from the future to sabotage the experiment." 09-08

  4. Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Completed (Time.com)
      "Scientists believe the LHC's results will help fill in gaps in the Standard Model, the far-reaching set of equations on the interaction of subatomic particles that is the closest that modern physics comes to a testable 'theory of everything.' For example, scientists believe the LHC will produce a particle, the Higgs Boson, that will end debate over how matter in the universe acquires mass. Or, it could even provide evidence for more ambitious theories of the universe, such as string theory, which unites quantum mechanics and general relativity, the previously known laws of the small and large that are currently incompatible in the Standard Model." 09-08

  6. Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Started Again (MSNBC News)
      "Scientists switched on the world's largest atom smasher Friday night for the first time since the $10 billion machine suffered a spectacular failure more than a year ago." 11-09

  7. Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Tour (MSNBC News)
      Provides slides of the LHC. 09-08

  8. Large Hadron Collider (Wikipedia.org)
      "The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle accelerator and collider located at CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland.... Currently under construction, the LHC is scheduled to begin operation (at reduced energies) in November 2007. The LHC is expected to become the world's largest and highest energy particle accelerator in 2008, when commissioning at 7 TeV is completed. The LHC is being funded and built in collaboration with over two thousand physicists from 34 countries, universities and laboratories." 03-07

  9. Super-Smasher Targets Mysteries of the Universe (MSNBC News)
      "It will take months for the machine to reach full power. But eventually, those protons will be whipped up to 99.999999 percent of the speed of light, slamming together with the energy of two bullet trains colliding head-on. Underground detectors as big as cathedrals will track the subatomic wreckage on a time scale of billionths of a second. Billions of bits of data will be sent out every second for analysis."

      "As big as the numbers surrounding the LHC are, the mysteries it was built to address are bigger:"

      "What was the newborn universe made of?"
      "What causes things to have mass?"
      "Why is most of that mass hidden?"
      "Where did all the antimatter go?"
      "Is our entire universe a mere sliver of all that is?" 09-08
