London: British scientists have recently announced that they have scheduled to fire up the world's biggest particle smasher again in 2015, which will allow them to unravel the secrets of Universe.

CERN has been gearing up for the next running of the world's biggest science experiment, the Large Hadron Collider. After a two-year upgrade to nearly double the power of the machine, scientists are hoping to unravel some of the secrets of dark matter.

Other big questions in physics that this new run of the LHC might help answer include understanding why there has been a lack of antimatter in the universe, proving the existence of dark matter particles and also a better study of supersymmetry, the theory that predicts the existence of a whole other set of "super'"particles.

For the first time on 9 December 2014, the magnets of one sector of the LHC, one eighth of the ring, were successfully powered to the level needed for beams to reach 6.5 TeV, the operating energy for Run 2. The goal for 2015 will be to run with two proton beams in order to produce 13 TeV collisions, an energy never achieved by any accelerator in the past.
