Data Set Large Hadron Collider

Publishing Particle Physics Data from the Large Hadron Collider

The European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) has published over 300 terabytes of particle accelerator data generated by the Compact Muon Solenoid particle detector that measures high-energy collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The datasets are available in the format used by CERN researchers, as well as in a derived format that requires substantially less computing power to analyze so university or high school students could work with the data. This is the second major release of LHC data, following a November 2014 publication of 27 terabytes of data that spawned several successful research initiatives at universities around the world.
