Congratulations, CERN




The Hadron Collider came back online with little fanfare back in November. Since that time, particles have been sent whizzing around the contraption gaining speed for a fatal collision with one another. CERN has announced that the collider has successfully smashed together protons at the highest rate of speed yet achieved.

The massive machine is finally producing the hoped for results after at least two delays - one involving a bird dropping some bread (divine providence?) shutting down the machine and the other involving an incident where a bad coupling allowed magnets to overheat.

The problem with the magnets caused extensive damaged that had to be repaired.
