After a short circuit delayed the particle accelerator's return, scientists at CERN say it should be ready in "a few days' time"
Physicists have fixed a short-circuit at the world’s largest proton smasher, making the particle-hunting machine ready for a restart “within days’ time” after a two-year shutdown. A fragment of metal in one of the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) magnet circuits that had...
Great news from Cern, for the day that’s in it... Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider just recently started testing the accelerator for running at the higher energy of 13 TeV, and already they have found new insights into the fundamental structure of the universe. Though four fundamental forces – the strong force, the more...
Physics. You never know what's next — first we had gravity and electromagnetic force, then scientists told us about the strong and the weak force, but none of that matters now, as CERN scientists confirmed Wednesday they've found strong...Show More Summary
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has resolved the magnet problem that had delayed the anticipated relaunch of the Large Hadron Collider following two years of upgrades and repairs.
The Large Hadron Collider has overcome a technical hurdle and could restart as early as next week. On Monday, teams working on the Large Hadron Collider resolved a problem that had been delaying the restart of the accelerator, according...Show More Summary
Well, at the risk of sounding sensationalist, why not an occasional mind expander? After the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator will start working this spring, it will allow researchers to look for the presence of mini black-holes. Show More Summary
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said Wednesday that the world’s largest atom smasher’s magnet has a major malfunction which will indefinitely delay its restart.
A short circuit will keep the world's largest particle smasher turned off for up to another month
Call this a mindbender-of-an-experiment. A popular atom smasher will soon be turned on at full force so that it might discover - and perhaps form - small black holes.Scientists at CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, or the European Council for Nuclear Research) in Switzerland are making an effort to find a new universe.
Engineers and technicians may need to warm up and recool a section of the accelerator before they can introduce particles. The Large Hadron Collider will not restart this week, according to a statement from CERN. Engineers and technicians are investigating an intermittent short circuit to ground in one of the machine’s magnet circuits. Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider is finally back in fighting shape. Hopefully this time it won't explode. The post Earth’s Most Powerful Physics Machine Gets Back in Action appeared first on WIRED.
The Large Hadron Collider is to switch on its beams at an even higher power soon, and it’s main goal is to open a gateway into the depths of Hell...at least according to some on the internet.The reason for this panic?CERN officiallyShow More Summary
The CERN Large Hadron Collider is gearing up for a new round of experiments, and things could get interesting this time with mini black holes and the discovery of parallel universes. We anxiously await the announcement of their discovery from Bad Wolf Bay.
The staggeringly complex LHC atom smasher at the CERN center in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect -- or even create -- miniature black holes. If successful a completely new universe will be revealed -- rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy books too. Show More Summary
Engineers have started the last step required before sending protons all the way around the renovated Large Hadron Collider. All systems are go! The the Large Hadron Collider’s operations team has started running the accelerator through...Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the most audacious physics experiment in human history. Now scientists are about to restart the giant particle collider for a new set of experiments. Last time, they did the almost-impossible and found the Higgs Boson. This time, they might find something even more exciting. Read more...
(Phys.org)—The possibility that other universes exist beyond our own universe is tantalizing, but seems nearly impossible to test. Now a group of physicists has suggested that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest particle collider in the world, may be able to uncover the existence of parallel universes, should they exist.
Take a tour of one of the most important rooms at CERN. CERN is more than just the Large Hadron Collider. A complex network of beam lines feeds particles from one accelerator to the next, gradually ramping up their energy along the way. Before...Show More Summary
The CMS and ATLAS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider join forces to make the most precise measurement of the mass of the Higgs boson yet. On the dawn of the Large Hadron Collider restart, the CMS and ATLAS collaborations are still gleaning valuable information from the accelerator’s first run. Show More Summary
