Scientists have been accelerating protons for years now and not for the fame of breaking a record, but that exact thing happened when a compact particle accelerator was able to put out 4.25 giga-electron volts of acceleration energy. That’s 1000 times more powerful than the standard massive particle accelerator.

This magical piece of science was developed by researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkley National Lab and was built to be smaller than a kitchen table. How does it work? Science. This particles accelerator is being called a tabletop accelerator as it can fit on one. It uses the w...
