What happens when a beam of subatomic particles traveling at nearly the speed of light meets the flesh of the human body?
Last week, the touring cast from the percussion show STOMP stopped by CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, to whack old accelerator parts with drumsticks. Read more...
A group known for making music with everyday objects recently got their hands on some extraordinary props. CERN, home to the Large Hadron Collider, is known for high-speed, high-energy feats of coordination, so it’s only fitting that...Show More Summary
If you visit the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) exhibition, now at the Queensland Museum, you'll see the recreation of a moment when the scientist who saw the first results indicating discovery of the Higgs boson laments she can't yet tell anyone.

The search for dark matter has led to the Large Hadron Collider (nothing yet) and to deep black corners of outer space (inconclusive). Where should scientists look next? If you said, “In an Australian gold mine,” you must own an Australian gold mine and are looking for...
The ATLAS collaboration today reports the first measurement of the W boson mass using Large Hadron Collider (LHC) proton–proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV.
Nestled between the border of France and Switzerland is the Large Hadron Collider. a 27 kilometre ring of superconducting magnets put together by over 10,000 physicists and engineers from 100 countries, best known for proving the existence...Show More Summary
Designed by a physics PhD student, the tiny model could be made into a real-life LEGO design.
It's the particles' last lap of the ring. On 5 December 2016, protons and lead ions circulated in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for the last time. At exactly 6.02am, the experiments recorded their last collisions (also known as 'events').

The two automated inspectors patrol the Large Hadron Collider’s 17 miles of tunnels.
The name's TIM, Robot TIM – meet the spy patrolling the 27-km tunnel of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). TIM, the Train Inspection Monorail, is a mini vehicle transporting a set of instruments along tracks suspended from the tunnel's ceiling. Show More Summary
TIM stalks the tunnels of the LHC.
Roughly once a year, the smallest Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment, LHC-forward (LHCf), is taken out of its dedicated storage on the site near the ATLAS experiment, reinstalled in the LHC tunnel, and put to use investigating high-energy cosmic rays.
Conspiracy theorists have raised alarm that ongoing AWAKE experiments at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) facility near Geneva in Switzerland triggered the recent series of earthquakes that hit central Italy and killed more than 250 people.

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is the world's largest particle accelerator, and experiments like this have reached a scale where physicists are no longer able to build them alone. Instead, qualified engineers now lead the construction of these behemoths. And we are part of a team of engineers and physicists working on upgrading the LHC and eventually constructing a successor.

The Large Hadron Collider still hasn't destroyed the world, but it is running low on disk space.
The Large Hadron Collider is now producing about a billion proton-proton collisions per second. The LHC is colliding protons at a faster rate than ever before, approximately 1 billion times per second. Those collisions are adding up:...Show More Summary
