The Large Hadron Collider has been pretty busy lately, probably discovering the Higgs Boson, and definitely not destroying the world and whatnot. It's probably earned a little time off, right? You bet it has, which is why it's going down for a two-year nap. More »
We've long known that the Large Hadron Collider would need to take a break, but that doesn't take the edge off of the moment itself: as of Valentine's Day, the particle accelerator has conducted its last test for the next two years.Show More Summary
After coming through with evidence for the long-sought Higgs Boson, Europe's Large Hadron Collider has begun a two-year "Long Shutdown," during which its underground components will be upgraded to run at even higher energies. The last interacting particle beams were extracted fro …
Rennovations will allow LHC to reach its full design energy, improve detectors.
Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider reached a milestone in data collection just before the accelerator’s last collisions for the next two years. A collective library of every written word, in every language, would contain about 50 petabytes of data. Show More Summary
After a spectacular first act, the Large Hadron Collider is taking an intermission break, shutting down on Feb. 11 for two years of construction and upgrades. The biggest discovery thus far has been the Higgs boson but the LHC could...
Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider made a major discovery, but the world’s highest-energy particle accelerator is just getting started. The Large Hadron Collider, the largest particle accelerator in the world, started colliding particles more than three years ago. Show More Summary
A first draft of the European Strategy for Particle Physics places emphasis on research at the Large Hadron Collider. Leaders in Europe’s particle physics community have released the first draft of a document listing their highest priorities for the field. Show More Summary
Sunday saw the first Large Hadron Collider physics beams of the year. Hooray! The scientists at CERN smashed together lead ions and protons in an attempt to study quark-gluon plasma, believed to be the primordial state of matter in the moments after the Big Bang. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider is getting ready for a two-year upgrade to prepare it to run at even higher energies. But first it's going for one more run.
The director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research told HindustanTimes.com that the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider will continue for at least two more decades. Jeffrey Epstein, a prominent science philanthropist...Show More Summary
In the past year, I've had multiple social scientists tell me that people are the hardest thing to study. Sure, you don't need a Large Hadron Collider. And the chances of suddenly requiring a HAZMAT suit are pretty slim. But people almost never give you the kind of solidly reliable data you can get out [...]
The latest Symphony of Science music video celebrates this year's discovery of the Higgs boson particle by CERN's Large Hadron Collider.
It appears that Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, will not be able to secure the funding to build the International Linear Collider (ILC) as the potential successor of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.
You have no doubt heard about Decay, the film made by PhD students set at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. The plot: The film follows a small group of students (played by physicists) after a disastrous malfunction in the world’s biggest particle accelerator. As they try desperately...
The latest research findings from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN show that the CMS and ATLAS experiments are now reporting that the significance of their observation of the Higgs-like particle is standing close to the 7 sigma level,...
In one of the last updates before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) shuts down until 2015, CERN has announced that its observation of the Higgs boson (or a particle that is Higgs-like) is now approaching 7 sigma certainty.
When radiation from the world's most powerful particle accelerator turns hapless scientists into the living dead, the result is an impressive debut horror flick
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva is 17 miles (27 kilometers) long. It's an incredible machine capable of releasing 14 TeV (Tera-electronvolts) of energy, which gave the Europeans the lead in experimental physics. But backShow More Summary
