The oldest particle accelerator at CERN, home to the world's most powerful particle accelerator, is celebrating its 60th birthday. It's still running. The Proton Synchrotron (PS) accelerated its first protons on November 24, 1959. It was the world's highest-energy accelerator when it first began running. Though it's since lost the title, today it supplies protons or heavy ions to a number of particle physics experiments, including the Large Hadron Collider (which currently holds the title as the largest and highest-energy accelerator).
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
CERN was established in 1954 for peaceful study of particle and nuclear physics, and the PS was among its first planned projects (its first accelerator, the Synchrocyclotron, was completed in 1957 and dismantled in 1990).
