The Large Hadron Collider will embark on a third run to uncover more cosmic secrets
Ten years ago, scientists were able to discover the Higgs Boson particle and help make
sense of the our universe using the Large Hadron Collider.
They did it again in 2018, unlocking new insights on protons.
Now, with a new host of questions, they plan to restart the particle accelerator this
month to possibly better understand cosmic unknowns like dark matter.
"This is a particle that has answered some questions for us and given many others,"
Dr. Sarah Demers, a physics professor at Yale University, tells NPR.
The Higgs Boson particle was first observed when scientists at the European Center
for Nuclear Research, or CERN, spun and crashed particles together near the speed of light.
