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

It's a Matter of Darkness: Digging Into the Large Hadron Collider Project [Infographic]

You've heard about it before: the Large Hadron Collider, often referred to as "one of the great engineering milestones of mankind," it is also one of the largest, encompassing a 17 mile circumference tube buried 330 feet under the border of France and Switzerland. Show More Summary

Behind the particles: The Guardian goes inside CERN and the Large Hadron Collider

10 months agoOdd : Boing Boing

What's it like to live and work in the world's most famous physics mecca? Suzanne Moore went to Geneva, Switzerland to meet the scientists who study particle physics at CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider and the Higgs Boson — and also home to a multinational population that can reach 10,000 at different times of year.

You Don't Have To Enlist To Tour A 50-Year-Old Sub On Street View

Google Street View is slowly becoming the window to a world that most of us may never get to see in real life. And if you’ve already explored every last nook and cranny of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider via Street View, you can now head on over to the UK and poke around the retired HMS Ocelot; a 50-year-old retired Oberon-class submarine.

Panoramic Virtual Tour Of CERN Comes To Google Street View

The Large Hadron Collider is the centerpiece of CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research). It is the world’s largest laboratory for studying particle physics. Now, thanks to Google Street View, you won’t have to travel to Geneva to understand how it is helping to develop our understanding of the universe we live in. Show More Summary

Tape rescues big data

12 months agoTechnology : Babbage

WHEN physicists throw the “on” 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

Google Street View in the Large Hadron Collider is a smash

12 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Crave

Welcome to the tunnel at the Large Hadron Collider. (Credit: Screenshot by Amanda Kooser/CNET) Perhaps Google Street View should be renamed "Google Anything View." Google's wandering cameras have now made their way into CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the atom-smashing wonder located under the Franco-Swiss border. Show More Summary

Google Street View goes underground at LHC

A virtual tour of the Large Hadron Collider and the ATLAS, CMS, LHCb and ALICE experiments is now available on Google Street View. Visitors all over the world can now explore CERN’s massive detectors and 1200 meters of the Large Hadron Collider tunnel with Google Street View—a Google product that links a series of panoramic photos into a virtual tour.

Google Street View Gives Everyone A Look Inside The Large Hadron Collider

The team at CERN hasn’t exactly made the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) a big secret. There are numerous documentaries that showcase one of our biggest and most expansive scientific endeavors of all-time. With that being said, documentaries don’t really allow us to slowly walk around the LHC at our own pace. Now, thanks to the...
