CERN’s Large Hadron Collider getting major luminosity upgrade

Prototype of a quadrupole magnet for the High-Luminosity LHC project

After eight years of banging subatomic particles together, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is getting a major upgrade. In a ceremony on Friday, the high-energy physics laboratory broke ground on the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project that, when it goes online in 2026, will increase the collision rates of the LHC by up to a factor of seven and allow around 10 times more data to be collected.

New maritime electric speed world record set by Jaguar Vector Racing

The V20E has broken the electric water speed record set in 2008

Jaguar Vector Racing has given electric propulsion on the water a big boost by breaking the British and world electric speed records for a battery-powered boat. On June 15, the Jaguar Vector Racing V20E piloted by Jaguar Vector co-founder and technical director Peter Dredge made an average speed of 88.61 mph (142.6 km/h) over two legs of the 1-km (0.62-mi) course on Coniston Water in northern England, smashing the previous record of 76.8 mph (123.6 km/h) set in 2008.
