As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) smashes protons at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, it creates a rich assortment of particles that are identified through the signature of their interactions with the ATLAS detector. But what if the...Show More Summary
Since resuming operation for Run 2, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been producing about 20,000 Higgs bosons per day in its 13 TeV proton–proton collisions. At the end of 2015, the data collected by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations were already sufficient for new observations of the Higgs boson at the new collision energy. Show More Summary
Particle physics is rarely a cheap-and-easy endeavour. Just think about the Large Hadron Collider, buried deep beneath the Swiss-French border -- it cost over $16 billion to find the Higgs Boson. Well, today at 6.20AM AEST, America is breaking ground on another enormous particle physics experiment. More »
Very cool: Development on the LHC’s replacement is expected to take decades, which is why experts are keen to get started now. The aim is to put together a machine that’s some seven times more powerful than the hardware we have today. Show More Summary
This week, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was in technical stop, but particles continued to circulate in the other accelerators. This is because the chain of four injectors that feed the LHC also supplies particles to myriad experiments across several experimental areas.
On 29 June 2017, the CERN DC passed the milestone of 200 petabytes of data permanently archived in its tape libraries. Where do these data come from? Particles collide in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) detectors approximately 1 billion times per second, generating about one petabyte of collision data per second. Show More Summary
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland have discovered an exciting new particle -- or rather, an exciting combination of particles. It doesn't have quite the same impact that the Higgs Boson (the one people called the God Particle) did five years ago. Show More Summary
Researchers at the CERN Large Hadron Collider have discovered a doubly charming new particle, which has long been theorized to exist. Named ? cc ++ (Xi cc ++ ) (and no, we don't know how to pronounce it either), the particle is the first...Show More Summary
It's a big one.
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have detected a new kind of particle that may provide new insights into the "glue" of nature.
Scientists using the Large Hadron Collider have identified a form of particle that until now was only theoretical. Dubbed Xi-cc++, it’s the first double heavy particle, something that might help reveal more about how atoms hold together. Show More Summary
Today at the EPS Conference on High Energy Physics in Venice, the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider has reported the observation of ?cc++ (Xicc++) a new particle containing two charm quarks and one up quark. The existence...Show More Summary
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have found the long-theorized particle, which is a type of baryon.
Scientists have found an extra-charming new subatomic particle they hope will help further explain a key force that binds matter together, reports the AP. Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Europe announced Thursday the fleeting discovery of a long theorized but never-before-seen type of baryon. Baryons are subatomic particles...
Researchers on the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider have found a new particle, unlike any other seen yet, which could help study one of the universe's four fundamental forces
When physicists first switched on the particle collider, the world worried about black holes. But they ran into a totally different kind of problem.
World's Most Powerful Particle Collider Taps AI to Expose Hack Attacks | Jesse Emspak: Machine learning is crucial to staying ahead of hackers trying to break into at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) massive worldwide computing ...
It’s been five years since physicists at CERN reported that they had observed a particle “consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson.” The discovery capped decades of theory and was an important triumph for the Large Hadron Collider, the means by which the elusive particle was found. But they didn’t close up shop and go home after that — the LHC is just getting up… Read More
The Large Hadron Collider is presently the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator and is currently undergoing a one-week technical stop for maintenance.
It’s less of a collision and more of a symphony. The Large Hadron Collider is definitely large. With a 17-mile circumference, it is the biggest collider on the planet. But the latter fraction of its name is a little misleading. That’s...Show More Summary
