The Large Hadron Collider restarted Friday after a three-year break for upgrades that will allow it to smash protons together at even greater speeds, in the hope of making new ground-breaking discoveries….
To start with, the collider is taking it easy.
A “relatively small number of protons” were circulated at an energy of 450 billion electronvolts, CERN said.
“High-intensity, high-energy collisions are a couple of months away,” the head of CERN’s beams department Rhodri Jones said.
CERN said its experts “will work around the clock” to get the collider ready to set a new record of 13.6 trillion electronvolts.
The unprecedented number of upcoming collisions will also serve as the starting gun for four years of massive data collection and analysis by CERN’s four huge particle detectors.

This week the Large Hadron Collider at CERN has turned back on after 3 years of shutdown. Not only have the “old” detectors been significantly improved, there is also a mysterious box being installed 70m over the ATLAS detector.

Back in 2008 Hadron consumed 800,000 megawatt hours (MWh) per year at 30 million Euros. How many MWh will be required to reach 13.6 trillion electronvolts? Whst will be the costs at todays energy prices and shortages?
Best to just keep quiet shut down all the factories, turn down the heat and put on a sweater like a good EU peasant while the elite wizards of the west play around with the fabric of reality.
