Hadron Collider Scientists Stumble Upon 'Pentaquark' Particle

Scientists using Europe’s Large Hadron Collider atom-smashing machine have stumbled on the existence of an exotic particle known as the pentaquark, a discovery that could shed light on how everyday matter is constituted.

After 50-year hunt, science finds pentaquarks

7 months agoNews : The Raw Story

Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva appears to have proved the existence of particles made of five quarks, solving a 50-year-old puzzle about the building blocks of matter, scientists said on Tuesday. Quarks are the tiny ingredients of sub-atomic particles such as protons and...

Pioneering physicist Ernest O. Lawrence transformed American science over nearly three decades. The inventor of the cyclotron, the ancestor of such advanced machines as Europe's Large Hadron Collider, Lawrence placed UC Berkeley in the forefront of high-energy physics. He single-handedly saved...

The Large Hadron Collider Returns in the Hunt for New Physics

In 2012, researchers at the world’s largest particle accelerator announced they had discovered a particle that resembled a key missing piece in our fundamental understanding of physics: the Higgs boson. It was a Nobel Prize-worthy moment. Show More Summary

More data, no problem

Scientists are ready to handle the increased data of the current run of the Large Hadron Collider. Physicist Alexx Perloff, a graduate student as Texas A&M University on the CMS experiment, is using data from the first run of the Large Hadron Collider for his thesis, which he plans to complete this year.

Big PanDA and Titan merge to tackle torrent of LHC's full-energy collision data

With the successful restart of the Large Hadron Collider, now operating at nearly twice its former collision energy, comes an enormous increase in the volume of data physicists must sift through to search for new discoveries. Fortunately, a remarkable data-management tool developed by physicists is evolving to meet the big-data challenge.

Higgs factory proposed for Beijing

Scientists in China hope to build a successor to the Large Hadron Collider—and take a new place on the international particle physics stage. The discovery of the Higgs boson was one of the biggest moments in the history of particle physics. Show More Summary

Coil for the next upgrade of the large hadron collider passes tests

A group collaborating across four American laboratories completed the first successful tests of a superconducting coil in preparation for the future high-luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, or HL-LHC. These tests indicate that the magnet design may be adequate for its intended use.
