CERN is starting a major upgrade to extract more data from the collisions of atoms

The world's largest particle accelerator is launching a major update which would allow us to extract 10 times more data and help in revealing the secrets of physics. European organization for nuclear research, aka CERN, began work on a project aimed at increasing the number of infinitesimal collisions, "luminosity", at the Large hadron Collider due to the installation of high-tech magnets.

CERN claims that the update is expected to lead to an increase in the amount of data already in 2026. According to the organization, the Collider located on the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, has worked well since its inception in 2010. Budget High-Luminosity LHC, a new Chapter in the history of the famous Collider will be about $ 950 million.

Six years ago, the Large hadron Collider "saw" and confirmed the existence of subatomic particles — the Higgs boson again . The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, has long predicted by the Standard model and the long-awaited, did not, however, surprise. But it was another important victory for the Standard model over the dark forces of particle physics are regularly waiting on the horizon. Physicists don't like that the Standard model does not correspond to their notions of a simple, they were concerned about its mathematical inconsistency and looking for the possibility to include gravity into the equation. Obviously, this results in different theories of physics, which can be after the Standard model. So there is a Grand unification theory, supersymmetry, tehnokolor and string theory.

Unfortunately, theories beyond the Standard model is not found successful experimental evidence and serious gaps in the Standard model. After fifty years it was the Standard model closest to the status theory of everything. That is why the update will be primarily successful working mechanisms like a TANK.
