The Large Hadron Collider: Are We Ready?

Large Hadron Collider: subatomic particles to travel on second circuit

Last Updated: 10:01am BST 10/09/2008

Scientists working on the most powerful particle accelerator ever built have successfully sent subatomic particles on one circuit of the Large Hadron Collider and are now preparing to send them on a second circuit, in the opposite direction.

  • Large Hadron Collider is activated | How it works
  • Legal bid to stop CERN atom smasher from 'destroying the world'
  • The first test, at 9.30 am local time (8.30 am British Summer Time), 300 feet below the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, fired a beam of protons all the way around a 17-mile tunnel.
