Experiments in particle physics carried out using the Large Hadron Collider have spotted an anomaly in the behavior of particles which does not correspond to the standard model of physics.
Bad news, citizens of Earth: those evil physicists at CERN are once again hellbent on vaporizing the Earth and ending the universe as we know it as the Large Hadron Collider ramps up to unprecedented energies. That’s according to Lonnie...Show More Summary
Researchers have helped to produce quark-gluon plasma -- a state of matter thought to have existed right at the birth of the universe -- with fewer particles than previously thought possible.
Switzerland is no stranger to innovation. Einstein published some of his most influential and revolutionary works at the University of Zurich; the country is home to the Large Hadron Collider, located in Geneva, and the world’s first webserver was Tim Berners-Lee’s NeXT computer at CERN, on which he also wrote the first Web browser.

The CMS and ATLAS experiments combined forces to more precisely measure properties of the Higgs boson. The ATLAS and CMS experiments on the Large Hadron Collider were designed to be partners in discovery. In 2012, both experiments reported...Show More Summary
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
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.
