Large Hadron Collider: 10 years of pushing the frontiers of physics

The Large Hadron Collider turned 10 this week

On September 10, 2008, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) fired up for the very first time. In the decade since, the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator has been responsible for some of the most important breakthroughs in scientific history, most notably the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2013. New Atlas is celebrating the 10-year anniversary with a look back at what the LHC has achieved and, with a massive new upgrade in the works, what physics puzzles it could help piece together in the future.

InTech takes its light, cosmic Luna teardrop trailer off-roading

The Luna Rover has sort of a modified teardop shape

The InTech RV Luna Lite is already one of the more impressive small camping trailers out there, a distinctive, little 1,500-lb (680-kg) teardrop with a panoramic front window and comforts like an available TV and air conditioning. InTech has now updated it into a more proper tow-anywhere off-roader. The playfully named Luna Rover debuts with a raised suspension, gear-hauling roof rack and grippy tires, preparing it to follow 4x4s off the beaten path and beyond.
