EUROPE - World’s Biggest Particle Collider Restarts

Arno Froese

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located near Geneva, is perhaps best known for helping confirm the subatomic Higgs boson in 2012.

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced the restart, saying that “two beams of protons circulated in opposite directions around the Large Hadron Collider’s 27-kilometer (16.8-mile) ring.” 

The LHC allows researchers to study the “dark universe”—the subatomic particles that make up some 96% of matter in the known universe, along with the forces that hold them together.

The particle accelerator consists of a ring of superconducting magnets which direct beams of energy around a circular route. The particles travel at high speeds in opposite directions and are made to collide into one another.

In 2012, the LHC allowed scientists to confirm a particle consistent with the Higgs boson particle, nicknamed the “God particle.”

The experiments are taking place more than 100 meters (330 feet) under the border area of Switzerland and France.

Scientists are expecting to conduct an unprecedented number of collisions and hope to make a series of groundbreaking discoveries.

Arno's Commentary

Here we are reminded of Genesis 11:6: “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” While the world does not speak one language, with artificial intelligence at your service, any language, at any time, anywhere in the world can be translated almost instantly if not perfectly.

We noticed the words “God particle.” Our Bible reads, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). That chapter ends with, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31). Nevertheless, man will not give up in his attempt to circumvent God’s Word, attempting to rewrite the origin of life and the universe. 

The future of planet earth is described by the apostle Peter in 2 Peter 3:12: “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” Yet this is not the end; verse 13 reads: “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
