The Large Hadron Collider will run at a record power of 13.6 trillion electron volts starting on July 5. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced this in a press statement.

The collider will be running continuously at record power for over four years, according to the study. The intensity has increased since April. It spent the previous three years on modernization.

The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson with the aid of the collider will be studied further thanks to the new level of power. At nearly the speed of light, two proton beams will be launched and directed in opposite directions. However, compared to the Higgs boson discovery, there will be 20 times more collisions this time.

Researchers intend to keep looking for Higgs boson decays into dark matter particles with the latest findings.

The Large Hadron Collider is situated between France and Switzerland at a depth of 100 meters. Over 10,000 scientists and engineers from more than 100 different nations using the collider to conduct their researches.
