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
Do you think the Large Hadron Collider rocks? I sure do, and as the collider rocks back to life in the coming weeks (more on that soon), you can celebrate by entering the Rock the LHC video contest. It’s simple: you make a short video about why you are excited about research at the LHC, Read the full article
After two years of upgrades and repairs, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland fires up again this month. This time it’s moving at twice the energy, looking for dark matter and exotic new particles. Continue reading ? The post Large Hadron Collider gears up to find dark matter, new particles in its second run appeared first on PBS NewsHour.
CERN's Director-General Rolf Heuer said that a souped-up Large Hadron Collider will be turned back on later in March at the CERN facility in Switzerland after a two-year hiatus, to delve deeper into the mystery of dark matter.
The Large Hadron Collider is getting back in business. After a two-year hiatus, the giant proton-smashing machine that brought you the discovery of the Higgs boson is set to take scientists’ experiments to nearly double its previous energy limit, in the hope of revealing the mysteries...
When you think of CERN's Large Hadron Collider you probably think of science, not opera or dancers in hardhats. But filmmaker and media artist Ruben Van Leer's Symmetry might change all that.
Its always hard to top a blockbuster first season that left off with a killer surprise ending, but the team at CERNs Large Hadron Collider hopes season two will be even wilder than the first. The worlds most powerful particle accelerator...Show More Summary
