Hadron collider turns on data tap

CMS team

The CMS experiment team celebrated when the first collisions occurred

The Large Hadron Collider has re-started scientific investigations after a two-year pause.

Scientists are waiting for the first new data to begin flowing from the underground particle smasher, paving the way to a new era in physics.

On Wednesday, the vast machine clattered proton beams together at much higher energies than were achieved during its first run in 2010-2013.

This should allow physicists to hunt for signs of new scientific phenomena.
