On September 10th, scientists succeeded in sending hydrogen protons, the positively charged nuclei of hydrogen atoms, all the way around the outer ring. They proved the complex machine works as designed.
These experiments could keep us with baited breath and hold us enthralled.
The first high-speed particle collisions will be recorded in a few months. Stay tuned.
