We have an LHC update. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider(LHC) reported on Tuesday that they have discovered a previously unobserved phenomenon during one of the routine collisions. The resulting discovery indicated that particles are linked together in a way that was never seen before in a proton collision.
Scientists first noted the new discovery in the mid of July. Physicist Guido Tonelli, a CERN scientist said, “We have today submitted a paper to expose our findings to the wider community”. The new phenomenon showed up as a ridge-like structure on the mapping graphs based on data from billions of proton collisions. It was part of one of six experiments around the accelerator. MIT physicist Gunther Roland who is an author for the paper submitted described the latest observation as “a subtle effect in a complex environment which needs careful work to establish its physical origin.”
Back in March, LHC set new records for smashing protons fired in beams approaching the speed of light.
