The research team behind the mission hope that this data will help solve several mysteries surrounding the Sun, such as what heats this plasma to 200 times temperature of the sun’s surface?

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) marked an impressive first on Wednesday 25th July when it accelerated an atom for the first time.

Scientists have made a massive breakthrough in the search for life on Mars, the discovery of a huge reservoir of water beneath the planet's surface.  The subsurface 20km lake at the planet's southern pole gives us our strongest sign yet that Mars could support living organisms.
