The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has awoken from 'hibernation' – and it's ready to flip the switch and hunt for new dimensions, pushing the boundaries of our knowledge of particle physics. During the past winter, the LHC took a break... Related Stories NASA's Hubble Space Telescope --Star-Casted Shadows Reveal Alien Planets
Findings from Rice University physicists working at Europe's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are providing new insight about an exotic state of matter called the "quark-gluon plasma" that occurs when protons and neutrons melt.
High-energy photon pairs at the Large Hadron Collider are famous for two things. First, as a clean decay channel of the Higgs boson. Second, for triggering some lively discussions in the scientific community in late 2015, when a modest excess above Standard Model predictions was observed by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations.

The LHC, operating at unprecedented luminosities, has revealed a system of five "glue-like" particles that could help us to fill out a "periodic table" of subatomic particles. The post Not one, not two, but five new particles discovered with the Large Hadron Collider appeared first on ExtremeTech.
This month scientists embedded sophisticated new instruments in the heart of a Large Hadron Collider experiment. Sometimes big questions require big tools. That’s why a global community of scientists designed and built gigantic detectors to monitor the high-energy particle collisions generated by CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.

Sometimes big questions require big tools. That's why a global community of scientists designed and built gigantic detectors to monitor the high-energy particle collisions generated by CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. From these collisions, scientists can retrace the footsteps of the Big Bang and search for new properties of nature.
The discovery of the excited states of the charmed omega baryon could uncover new secrets about this type of particle and the quarks that make it.
This month U.S. scientists embedded sophisticated new instruments in the heart of a Large Hadron Collider experiment.
Closing in on the "dark sector of physics".
Scientists at CERN have now completed "open-heart surgery" on one of the detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In a complex operation that ran from 27 February to 9 March, the giant Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector received a new "heart" – it's Pixel Tracker.
Mirror: This chilling mysterious video shows a group of ‘researchers’ at the CERN Large Hadron Collider staging a chilling ‘satanic human sacrifice’ ritual. The footage shows a group of cloaked men gathering in a courtyard around a statue at the facility in Geneva, Switzerland. But CERN has declared that the video is fake, and claims […]
Engineers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research have successfully installed a new "pixel tracker" in the CMS detector, increasing the odds of discovering signs of "new physics."
The LHC had a "heart transplant".
CERN’s Large Hadron Collider beneath Geneva, Switzerland isn’t just one, but a handful of experiments sprinkled along the length of the 17-mile-round ring. One of the biggest, the Compact Muon Solenoid or CMS, is getting a major upgrade today, which CERN is comparing to an open-heart surgery. Read more...
If I understand what you just declared, you just asserted that CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, disproved the existence of ghosts. What did British physicist and professor Brian Cox say to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to elicit such a response? Is Tyson right? Is Cox...
He's got a point.
The Large Hadron Collider sits underground, spanning over five miles across beneath the bucolic suburbs of Geneva, Switzerland. This metal behemoth serves to try and understand the most basic building blocks of our universe. The question stands, then: if ghosts are real, shouldn’t the LHC have found them? Read more...
At least one physicist contends that the Large Hadron Collider has, in fact, disproved the existence of ghosts.
An Iowa physicist intends to find out.
The Large Hadron Collider facilitated the discovery of the Higgs boson, but it's not yet immune to animal troubles. Following a similar incident last April, a stone marten jumped a fence at the $7 billion site in Switzerland on Nov. 20 and came into contact with a transformer, causing the...
