The first particle accelerator was built more around the time of 1927 (resonance linear accelerator) about eight years after Rutherford first split the nucleus. But not too sure one that, I have other sources saying 1929, but definitely not as late as 1972. I do know that the first successful cyclotron (a type of circular particle accelerator, which was basically the ground work for the cynchrocyclotron spelling?) was built and tested in 1931 by Ernest Lawrence.

Is it possible to get more speed then light to the particle with accelerator?

No. The more energy the accelerator can give the particle, the closer the particle can approach to the speed of light, but it can never reach exactly that speed.

How does a particle accelerator work?

With the help of a particle accelerator, a scientist can get a particle such as a proton or neutron of a hydrogen atom (without the electron) to accelerate at incredible velocities, and then collide them with another proton or neutron of a hydrogen atom or a fixed target. Basically, an accelerator takes a particle, speeds it up using electromagnetic fields, and smashes the particle into a target or other particles. Surrounding the collision point are detectors that record the many pieces of the event.
