The worst thing that could possibly be said about the process is it releases large numbers of high velocity neutrons. Thankfully these can be absorbed by a blanket of lithium, where they can be recycled to make more fuel.
Operating at unprecedented luminosities, the LHCb experiment at CERN has revealed a system of five “glue-like” particles that interact through the strong and weak nuclear forces. The particles are called … Continue reading Not one, not two, but five new particles discovered with the Large Hadron Collider
