'Higgs bio-entanglement simulation' goes horribly … braaaiiiiins What do you get when some attractive students stay up too late inside the Large Hadron Collider and aren't told about radiation leaks?…
We were excited to hear about Decay, the movie filmed by physics PhD students at CERN's Large Hadron Collider facility. Now you can watch the entire 75-minute film on YouTube and see what happens when you give physicists a camera, some zombie makeup, and access to one of the world's top research facilities. More »
UPDATE: Old article, April Fool's joke. Actual testing schedule HERE. Boy is my face red (I'm trashed). Despite all my hoping and praying, the world isn't going to end on December 21st. Or at least it wasn't going to until the scientists...Show More Summary
The zombie apocalypse continues to run rampant in the world of pop culture, and in the new film Decay, made by physics students at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, it makes its way to the Large Hadron Collider, where zombies...
A new system that would use bent crystals to remove errant particles in the Large Hadron Collider passed a major test last month by surviving a barrage of protons at high energy.
NEW YORK (CAP) - Consumers are scrambling for this year's gotta-have-it gadget: a home version of the world-famous Large Hadron Collider. The LHC Mini by Swiss+Tech Tools lets kids collide their own proton beams, turning mundane particle...Show More Summary
Teams at the Large Hadron Collider must be developing a knack for producing tangible evidence of theoretical particles. After orchestrating 2 million collisions between lead nuclei and protons, like the sort you see above, the collider's...Show More Summary
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced unexpected behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions, creating a new type of matter known as color-glass condensate. When beams of particles crash...
A contingent of MIT researchers working with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) think they've found something no one has ever seen in the depths of the reams of data provided by the LHC's particle smashups, and no, it's not the Higgs boson,...Show More Summary
Greetings, children. Hopefully all of you are still stuffed to the point of bursting from last night. For those of you who are conscious enough to be on the internet, we've got a couple of nifty - sort of -...
Popular Science has given Google Now its "Innovation of the Year" award, putting it alongside past winners like the Large Hadron Collider, the Toyota Prius and the Mars Curiosity Rover. It's august company to be sure, and the reasoning...Show More Summary
Using data from experiments performed in 2010 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, scientists are studying rare particle decays that could explain why the universe has more matter than antimatter. Thousands of...
If you hurl two oranges together at close to the speed of light, there’s going to be a lot of pulp. But, somewhere in the gooey mess will be the rare splinters left over from two seeds colliding. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN works in a similar way. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN has inspired its fair share of doomsday scenarios and rumors of pending Apocalypse, mostly centering on the exceedingly far-fetched possibility of creating mini black holes that consume the universe. Fortunately,...Show More Summary
On the coattails of CERN’s success with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), Europeans and the world at large have another grand science project to be excited about: the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project involving 40 research and academic institutions. The project’s goal is to build powerful lasers — two in Romania and [...]
ATLAS Control Room, Meyrin, Switzerland 11:30 p.m., Nov. 4 It is half an hour into the night shift at the control room for the Large Hadron Collider’s ATLAS detector, and there is nothing to do. The LHC is not running. “We can’t do anything. We just have to wait,” says shift supervisor Adrian Vogel.
Scientists on an experiment at the Large Hadron Collider confirmed this week the existence of a particle-like structure first observed at the LHC’s predecessor, the Tevatron. Members of the CMS collaboration announced on Nov. 14 that...Show More Summary
Exceedingly rare decay of B mesons shows up largely as expected.
When the Large Hadron Collider (the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator) was built last decade, there were concerns (mostly from doomsday soothsayers and anti-science nuts) that it could open up a black hole and swallow up everything on Earth. Show More Summary
