But first let me take a selfie. First world beggars. Black energy – Bottled at source (Large Hadron Collider) Fierce storms in Sydney today. Countless brave, but cheap little umbrellas fought the wind and rain. And lost. Korean guy caught cheating. Girlfriend starts to send these photos. I suspect one of these cans is NOT […]

Seeing the CMS experiment with new eyes

The wonders of particle physics serve as a springboard for a community-building arts initiative at Fermilab. For many, the aspects of research at the Large Hadron Collider that inspire wonder are the very same that cast it as intellectually...Show More Summary

The LHC Has Broken Its Own Particle Acceleration World Record

On April 5, after two years of refurbishment and upgrades, the Large Hadron Collider officially went back online: two proton beams firing in opposite directions around a 27-kilometer ring with an initial "injection energy" of 450 GeV, or about three times that of the Higgs boson decays reported in 2013.

Turn Your Smartphone Into A Particle Detector For Cosmic Rays

6 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The electronic camera on a chip in your smartphone is the same style of technology used in the Large Hadron Collider. Now a group of astrophysicists wants to capitalize on the similarity to recruit citizen sciences to track the fallout from ultra high energy cosmic rays hitting our atmosphere. Read more...

Episode 69: The Large Hadron Collider and the Search for the Higgs-Boson

When it was first developed, the standard model predicted a collection of particles, and thanks to more and more powerful colliders, physicsists have been able to find them all except one: the Higgs-Boson. It's an important one because it should explain how objects have mass. The European Large Hadron Collider should have the power and sensitivity to find the Higgs-Boson.

LHC breaks energy record

The Large Hadron Collider has beaten its own world record for accelerating particles. Around midnight last night, engineers at CERN broke a world record when they accelerated a beam of particles to 6.5 trillion electronvolts—60 percent...Show More Summary

Here’s what happens when two proton beams collide at nearly the speed of light

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — the largest machine humans have ever built — specializes in hurling protons at each other at nearly the speed of light. It was powered up on April 5 after two years of upgrades. The new and improvedShow More Summary

Everything you need to know but were too afraid to ask about the biggest machine on Earth — the newly revamped and restarted Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest machine ever built, restarted on April 5, and it's powering up to uncover some potentially game-changing discoveries in physics. The LHC brought us the Higgs boson during its first run inShow More Summary

Colliders, Observatories, and Precision Measurements, Oh My!

The editor at Forbes suggested I should write something about the re-start of the Large Hadron Collider, so I did. But being me, I couldn’t just do an “LHC, yay!” post, but talk about it in a larger context, as one of three major approaches to filling the gaps in the Standard Model: The big…

The Three Ways to Look for Exotic Physics

6 months agoTechnology : Forbes: Tech

The big physics story over the weekend was the re-start of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It was initially started in 2008, but some key circuits failed shortly after it was switched on. A relatively quick patch job allowed it to operate [...]

Large Hadron Collider Gears Up to Go Beyond Boundaries of Human Understanding

A scientist working on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has compared the work his team are doing to going to the ends of the earth to chart new land. CERN, the facility which houses...Show More Summary

AFTER@LHC: Going beyond the collider

While everybody is excited by the coming “phase 2” of the LHC, someone else is already looking beyond it, thinking: “what are the possible future scenarios for our beloved Large Hadron Collider?” The community of “phenomenologists”, theoreticians who like to play with data, closely collaborate with experimentalists to plan new experiments. We are hoping to Read the full article

The Large Hadron Collider Is Back, Baby

6 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

It's been closed for renovations and upgrades since 2013, but on Sunday, the Large Hadron Collider powered on with no sign of complications, and successfully carried two proton beams, fired in opposite directions, around its 27km circumference. Read more...

Particle-smashing Large Hadron Collider off to a smooth restart

After a two-year hiatus, the giant proton-smasher that discovered the Higgs boson is back in action – and ready for bigger challenges. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, successfully sent two beams of particles in opposite directions...
