The Large Hadron Collider broke its own record again in 13-trillion-electronvolt test collisions. Today engineers at the Large Hadron Collider successfully collided several tightly packed bunches of particles at 13 trillion electronvolts. Show More Summary
Well, they've finally done it, and so far there's no black hole originating in Geneva. The researchers set up the test LHC collisions at 13 TeV in a way that protects both the machine and the detectors from stray particles from the beam.
The world’s largest particle smasher broke the record for energy levels late Wednesday in a test run after a two-year upgrade, CERN announced Thursday. “Last night, protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV (teraelectronvolts) for the...
Matter and antimatter should have wiped each other out at the universe's birth. The upgraded Large Hadron Collider aims to find why matter alone survived
All those super low energy jets that the LHC cannot see? LHC can still see them. Hi Folks, Particle colliders like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are, in a sense, very powerful microscopes. The higher the collision energy, the smaller distances we can study. Using less than 0.01% of the total LHC energy (13 TeV),
The Standard Model of particle physics stands its ground again. As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) embarks on its second run, a new study published Wednesday in the journal Nature combines data from two previous experiments from theShow More Summary
Data collected from the world's most powerful particle accelerator, which restarted last month, shows long-sought after signs of particle decay, predicted in the Standard Model of Physics but until now unseen.
Smashing protons together in search of strange particles, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva say they’ve discovered signs of particle decays that have long been predicted, but have never before been seen.
Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, have combined their results and observed a previously unseen subatomic process.
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have just announced the detection of a rare particle decay “harder to find than the famous Higgs particle.” The strange B meson is certainly a lot less famous than the Higgs boson, but it also has an important role to play in the Standard Model of particle physics.

A joint result from the CMS and LHCb experiments precludes or limits several theories of new particles or forces. Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN have combined their results and observed a previously unseen subatomic...Show More Summary
Were getting closer: The Large Hadron Collider is delivering proton-to-proton collisions for four of CERN's major experiments at energies up to 450 GeV per beam.
The world’s largest particle smasher resumed colliding protons Tuesday as it gradually reboots following a two-year upgrade, Europe’s physics lab CERN said. The low-energy collisions took place in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Tuesday morning, CERN said in a statement. The protons...
Restarting the world's largest particle accelerator after a two-year overhaul isn't just a matter of throwing a switch and making sure the lights go on. It's an eight-week process of baby steps – one's that involve billions of electron volts. Show More Summary
Low-energy collisions help test conditions for a return to experiments.
The Large Hadron Collider is back in the business of colliding particles. Today low-energy protons met in the hearts of the four Large Hadron Collider experiments. These test collisions will help the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb collaborations...Show More Summary
CERN is restarting its Large Hadron Collider (after a two-year massive upgrade) to start working on amazing experiments to reveal the identity of “dark matter” and to search for tiny black holes that could be gateways to parallel universes or alternate dimensions. Show More Summary
Either Supersymmetry will be found in the next years of research at the Large Hadron Collider, or it isn’t exactly what theorists hoped it was. One of the big questions scientists are asking with experiments at the Large Hadron Collider...Show More Summary
No significant signs of new physics with the present data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider, but it takes only 1 significant deviation in the data to change everything. First collisions of protons at the world's largest science experiment are expected...
The latest book from Amir Aczel, who has written previously about the compass, the Large Hadron Collider, and Fermat's Last Theorem, is Finding Zero: A Mathematician's Odyssey to Uncover the Origins of Numbers...in particular, the number...Show More Summary
