The Large Hadron Collider has broken its own energy record with two 3.5 trillion volt proton beams.
The feat is being hailed as a credit to the design of the collider and the work that went in to fixing it, future maintenance of the machine is being planned to accomodate even greater energies.
The Large Hadron Collider, the world's biggest physics experiment, has broken its own particle beam energy record. On Friday morning, the machine created two beams of protons, each with an energy of 3. 5 trillion electron volts.
