Super Collider POWER ON

The Large Hadron Collider is back on and powering up. If all goes according to plan, bringing the beam up to the power it needs to be at will set a world record for beam energy, surpassing by.2 trillion the record set by the Tevatron in Illinois at 1 trillion electron volts.

As Steve Cern, director of accelerators has said, "We've learned from our experience, and engineered the technology that allows us to move on. That's how progress is made."
