  1. Thomas Dillard says:

    It is about the collisions of atom particles that has protons. Problems that developed with the beams had made the initial attempts delay and unsuccessful. When collisions occur, the beams will be surrounded by billions of protons but the particles are so tiny that few will collide at each crossing.
