Subatomic particles have been found that appear to defy the Standard Model of particle physics. The team working at Cern's Large Hadron Collider have found evidence of leptons decaying at different rates, which could possibly point to...Show More Summary
The possible discovery of a boson at the Large Hadron Collider suggests a restoration of symmetry between two simple things: left and right
Researchers pushing the Large Hadron Collider to its limits say engineering difficulties will cut short the amount of physics data gathered this year
It’s the not-so-secret mission of the LHC to build an improved model by discovering new physics. The post The Hadron Collider Is Smashing Old Ideas appeared first on WIRED.
Turns out it’s not all fun, Star Wars games and the Hadron Collider on the blockbuster CBS comedy. A longtime and now-fired 2nd AD on The Big Bang Theory is going after producer Warner Bros Television for kicking him to the curb for hitting the Big Five-O. Show More Summary
The ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN has made a precise measurement of the difference between ratios of the mass and electric charge of light nuclei and antinuclei. The result confirms a fundamental symmetry of nature to an unprecedented precision for light nuclei. Show More Summary
Scientists working with supercomputers (or machines like the Large Hadron Collider) are generating vast amounts of data. Trying to pass around terabytes of numbers using Dropbox can get a little slow, so researchers on the West Coast are getting their own private fibre-optic network, dubbed the Pacific Research Platform.

In a breathless report uploaded to YouTube, a Christian investigative reporter who works for evangelist Jim Bakker warns that science is tempting God to destroy us all like he did with the Tower of Babel by searching for the “God particle” using the Large Hadron Collider. The LHC is an...
According to this permanently-smiling Christian, the Large Hadron Collider is a horrible idea because God did away with the Tower of Babel.So, you know, logic.The video gets really "interesting" around the 5:05 mark.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is where the miraculous meets the impractical. In addition to probing the secrets of the Universe at the subatomic level, it also has potential for a variety of medical applications. Unfortunately,...Show More Summary
After a two-year shutdown, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider has begun a new quest to probe some of the biggest puzzles about the universe, such as dark matter and the possible presence of other dimensions.
The Large Hadron Collider remains one of mankind's greatest successful undertakings -- but what does it actually do?
Science is expensive. Tracking the polar ice caps, analyzing the heavens—it all takes equipment and people smart enough to use it, which in turn costs boodles and oodles of dollars. The Large Hadron Collider doesn't run on smiles, and...Show More Summary
Hey, it's HighScalability time: In case you were wondering, the world is weird. Large Hadron Collider discovers new pentaquark particle. 3x: Uber bigger than taxi market; 250x: traffic in HotSchedules' DDoS attack; 92%: Apple’s share...Show More Summary
The CMS and ATLAS experiments at the LHC see something mysterious, but it’s too soon to pop the Champagne. An unexpected bump in data gathered during the first run of the Large Hadron Collider is stirring the curiosity of scientists on the two general-purpose LHC experiments, ATLAS and CMS. CMS first reported the bump in July 2014. Show More Summary
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are doing their thing again, and we should all be very scared because obviously the world will end soon. In the news: Cuban athletes defect to America, Tim Hortons employees defect to other jobs, and John Tory asks for a sign of the times. Show More Summary
For decades, physicists have looked for the pentaquark -- a type of subatomic particle long theorized to exist but never seen, despite numerous false alarms.
The newest addition to reality is an exotic hadron, one scientists think might be born at the heart of collapsing stars.
With the Large Hadron Collider back up and running, it’s smashing particles day and night. The machine’s latest discovery: a brand new form of matter known as a pentaquark, composed partially of anti-matter.
Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva appears to have proved the existence of particles made of five quarks, solving a 50-year-old puzzle about the building blocks of matter, scientists said on Tuesday. Quarks are the tiny ingredients of sub-atomic particles such as protons and neutrons, which are made of three quarks. Show More Summary
