A nuclear physicist and an archaeologist have joined forces to produce a unique appraisal of the cultural significance of one of the world's most important locations for scientific inquiry: CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider on the Franco-Swiss border. Show More Summary
The recent LHCC open meeting is a great place to look to see the current state of the Large Hadron Collider’s physics program. While watching the talks I had one of those moments. You know – where suddenly you realize something that you’d seen here and there isn’t just something you’d seen here and there, […]
The things we do for Science! Yeah. Not sure how to best title this post or fully explain the picture. Let's just say that I spent a bit of this afternoon explaining some of the science of the Large Hadron Collider to a bright orange puppet that was determined to not believe whatever I told him/it.

When experiments at the Large Hadron Collider collect the first 13-teraelectronvolt particle collisions data today, a long wait will be over for physicists who now begin some of the most exciting years of their careers searching for new particles, extra dimensions and the nature of dark matter.
So, here we are. Still in existence. Hurrah! The Large Hadron Collider (image right is courtesy of CERN) started the new phase of experimental work today, colliding particles at double the energy it was working at a few years back when the Higgs was discovered. Show More Summary
Data collection has officially begun at the Large Hadron Collider. Today the Large Hadron Collider began collecting data for the first time in two years. The world’s most powerful particle accelerator powered back on in April and saw its first record-energy collisions in May. Show More Summary
Today, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) started delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months. After an almost two year shutdown and several months re-commissioning, the LHC is now providing collisions to all of its experiments at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV, almost double the collision energy of its first run.

(Phys.org)—With a circumference of 27 km (17 miles), the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) holds the claim of being the largest particle accelerator in the world, but it is far from being the only device of its kind. Currently there are about...Show More Summary
Also: Greece is getting its last offer from creditors; financially strapped Puerto Rico will try to overhaul its national utility; and the Large Hadron Collider is ready to smash more atoms.
The Large Hadron Collider started smashing particles for all its experiments today at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV.
The Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, is back—and more powerful than ever before. After just over two years down time, during which the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) upgraded and rebooted the collider, it has officially started to deliver physics data. Show More Summary
Today begins the second operation period of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. By declaring “stable beams”, the LHC operators signal to physicists it is now safe to turn all their detectors on. After more than two years of intensive repair and consolidation work, the LHC now operates at higher energy. What do we
As of today, the Large Hadron Collider will run at full, record-breaking power levels, as scientists kick off a new set of experiments that will help us understand the secrets of particle physics. Read more...
Experiments are about to restart at the Large Hadron Collider, and this time the search will focus on dark matter and supersymmetric particles
The particle collider at CERN is gearing up to restart science experiments for the first time in over two years
The event for which physicists across the world are waiting with bated breath is almost here. CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — the world’s most powerful particle accelerator credited with the discovery of the “God particle” Higgs boson in 2012 — will be back in action next week, the...
On May 20 the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) broke a world energy record. It's now smashing particles together with nearly twice as much energy as the old record, and it's going to start churning out data next week. The LHC at the CERNShow More Summary
CERN's recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has collided two proton beams at a record energy of 13 teraelectronvolts, meaning experiments are about to resume
CERN’s Large Hadron Collider — the massive particle accelerator that found evidence of the celebrated Higgs boson back in 2011 — is back online after a brief two-year hiatus and a $150 million upgrade. That means high-energy protonsShow More Summary
Last Wednesday night, a new record was set at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) when particles were smashed together with vastly more energy than ever before
