The End of Time and Visitors Track the Great Mystery of Life on Earth

9 months agoUnited States / Seattle : Slog

Peter Mettler's cinematic meditation on the nature of time, The End of Time, begins with a look at the extremely small (the CERN Large Hadron Collider smashing protons at high speeds) and ends with a look at the extremely large (the telescopes in Chile's Atacama Desert penetrating the universe and the deepest parts of time).

CERN Hears Snowmass and Wants to Build 80 km, 100TeV TLEP Collider

Not content with the 27-kilometre-round Large Hadron Collider, researchers at CERN have their sights set on a new beast of a particle collider that could have a circumference of 80 to 100 kilometres. The nuclear research organisation...Show More Summary

Science Wants a Large Hadron Collider That's Over Three Times As Big

9 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

The Large Hadron Collider certainly lives up to its name: the underground behemoth is nearly 17 miles in circumference. Oh, and it also helped scientists discover the Higgs Boson, no big deal. But those crazy scientists always want more,...Show More Summary

Couple's history intertwined with 60 years of CERN

A pair of scientists who have been at CERN since almost the very beginning still often find themselves in the laboratory's cafeteria, arguing physics. CERN laboratory, home of the Large Hadron Collider, will celebrate 60 years of pioneering...Show More Summary

Fermilab fills in for CERN during accelerator shutdown

During the shutdown of CERN’s accelerator complex, scientists who need to test parts for experiments at the Large Hadron Collider are taking advantage of another accelerator across the pond. Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider put up with a lot. Show More Summary

Catch 'Particle Fever' in First Trailer for Hadron Collider Documentary

If you're interested in science at all, then you've likely heard of the Large Hadron Collider, an enormous particle accelerator that allows physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energyShow More Summary

The tailer for Particle Fever smashes open the Large Hadron Collider

10 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Particle Fever follows the giant launch of the Large Hadron Collider, the massive machine with a 17-mile circumference that's home to some 10,000 scientists. This documentary follows six researchers and their journey to unravel the secrets of the universe — check out the first trailer here. Read more...

Four things you might not know about dark matter

How much do you really know about dark matter? Not long after physicists on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN laboratory discovered the Higgs boson, CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer was asked, “What’s next?” One of the top priorities he named: figuring out dark matter.

Exhibit brings the LHC to London

Visitors to London’s Science Museum can now take a simulated tour of CERN and the Large Hadron Collider. The largest scientific experiment ever constructed has claimed some new territory—about 8600 square feet in South Kensington, London. The...Show More Summary

Google ME View: Giant now lets anyone map their surroundings and upload them using a smartphone

Google’s Street View project has mapped the landmarks of Venice, the interiors of train stations and even the Large Hadron Collider. But now anyone can document views of their favourite locations, which might not have been visited by Google’s cameras. Show More Summary

Large Hadron Collider Pop-Up

Papadakis publishers have released the Higgs edition of their unique publication – the result of a collaboration between the home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN and renowned paper engineer Anton Radevsky. Radevsky’s previous pop-ups include The Modern Architecture Pop-Up Book, The Pop-Up Book Of Space Craft and The Wild West Pop-Up Book. Show More Summary

Make your own Google Street View scene, giant camera not required

11 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Engadget

Google's Street View has let us virtually explore the heights of the Eiffel Tower, the depths of the Large Hadron Collider and the world's train stations, but there are places on the globe that remain hidden from Mountain View's all-seeing camera....

A 60-Year-Old Technology Offers A Solution To A Modern Problem

When physicists switch on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), between three and six gigabytes of data spew out of it every second. That is, admittedly, an extreme example. But the flow of data from smaller sources than CERN, the European particle-research organisation outside Geneva that runs the LHC, is also growing inexorably. Show More Summary

A Collision Course

Prospero’s J.P. gives a rave review to “Collider,” a new exhibition at the Science Museum in London about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC): Admirably, the curators do not shy away from the notoriously complicated science the LHC was designed to shed light on—not just the Higgs boson, but also other outstanding physical puzzles like how […]

Step Into The Large Hadron Collider At The Science Museum

Is this everything you'd ever want to know about one of the greatest science experiments?

Tired of Goldieblox girl power? Me too

Why does there have to be a great divide between drawing pretty pink princesses and building the Large Hadron Collider?

Searching for cosmic accelerators via IceCube

In our universe there are particle accelerators 40 million times more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Scientists don't know what these cosmic accelerators are or where they are located, but new results being reported from "IceCube," the neutrino observatory buried at the South Pole, may show the way.

Coming soon: The Very Large Hadron Collider?

last yearOdd : Boing Boing

What comes after the Large Hadron Collider? Obviously, the answer is a Very Large Hadron Collider. At least, that's what some physicists are hoping for.

Snowmass: Let us Have the Very Large Hadron Collider!

When Europe’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) started up in 2008, particle physicists would not have dreamt of asking for something bigger until they got their US$5-billion machine to work. But with the 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson,...Show More Summary
