Scientists in China hope to build a successor to the Large Hadron Collider—and take a new place on the international particle physics stage. The discovery of the Higgs boson was one of the biggest moments in the history of particle physics. Show More Summary
A group collaborating across four American laboratories completed the first successful tests of a superconducting coil in preparation for the future high-luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, or HL-LHC. These tests indicate that the magnet design may be adequate for its intended use.

Colliding lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider creates tiny samples of matter at energy densities that have not occurred since microseconds after the Big Bang. At these densities, ordinary matter melts into its primordial constituents of quarks and gluons. Show More Summary
There is a video of an impromptu meeting between three Stanford University professors that has received nearly three million views on YouTube. For most of the people who watch the video, its message is inscrutable. It shows a physicist...Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider is back in action at the CERN laboratory after receiving a big upgrade in the time since its last run in 2012. The particle collider is poised to make discoveries that could rewrite the book on particle physics.

Particle physicists Carl Haber and Vitaliy Fadeyev have discovered a way to use Large Hadron Collider technology to preserve historic audio.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a giant 17-mile underground loop full of supercooled magnets, thirty-foot particle detectors, and miles of accelerator tubes. It's the largest machine that humans have ever built. But there are plans for even larger machines. Show More Summary
A nuclear physicist and an archaeologist have joined forces to produce a unique appraisal of the cultural significance of one of the world's most important locations for scientific inquiry: CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider on the Franco-Swiss border. Show More Summary
The recent LHCC open meeting is a great place to look to see the current state of the Large Hadron Collider’s physics program. While watching the talks I had one of those moments. You know – where suddenly you realize something that you’d seen here and there isn’t just something you’d seen here and there, […]
The things we do for Science! Yeah. Not sure how to best title this post or fully explain the picture. Let's just say that I spent a bit of this afternoon explaining some of the science of the Large Hadron Collider to a bright orange puppet that was determined to not believe whatever I told him/it.

When experiments at the Large Hadron Collider collect the first 13-teraelectronvolt particle collisions data today, a long wait will be over for physicists who now begin some of the most exciting years of their careers searching for new particles, extra dimensions and the nature of dark matter.
So, here we are. Still in existence. Hurrah! The Large Hadron Collider (image right is courtesy of CERN) started the new phase of experimental work today, colliding particles at double the energy it was working at a few years back when the Higgs was discovered. Show More Summary
Data collection has officially begun at the Large Hadron Collider. Today the Large Hadron Collider began collecting data for the first time in two years. The world’s most powerful particle accelerator powered back on in April and saw its first record-energy collisions in May. Show More Summary
Today, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) started delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months. After an almost two year shutdown and several months re-commissioning, the LHC is now providing collisions to all of its experiments at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV, almost double the collision energy of its first run.

(Phys.org)—With a circumference of 27 km (17 miles), the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) holds the claim of being the largest particle accelerator in the world, but it is far from being the only device of its kind. Currently there are about...Show More Summary
Also: Greece is getting its last offer from creditors; financially strapped Puerto Rico will try to overhaul its national utility; and the Large Hadron Collider is ready to smash more atoms.
The Large Hadron Collider started smashing particles for all its experiments today at the unprecedented energy of 13 TeV.
The Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, is back—and more powerful than ever before. After just over two years down time, during which the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) upgraded and rebooted the collider, it has officially started to deliver physics data.

Today begins the second operation period of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. By declaring “stable beams”, the LHC operators signal to physicists it is now safe to turn all their detectors on. After more than two years of intensive repair and consolidation work, the LHC now operates at higher energy. What do we
