There are lots of secret fans of particle physics. My favourite tweets of all time, for example, are ex-baseball player and steroid user Jose Canseco's incredible opinions on the Higgs boson. More »
Physicists monitoring the Large Hadron Collider are seeking clues to a theory that will answer deeper questions about the cosmos. But the silence from the frontier has been ominous.
Not as bad as Kevin Hassett's declarations that CERN's Large Hadron Collider might "swallow the Earth" and that the U.S. has "no recourse short of military action" to deal with the fact that "as science progresses, the possibility climbs ever higher that the fondest dreams of scientists might entail risks of planetary destruction....

A research team of Tomsk Polytechnic University is participating in the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN). The TPU scientists were assigned to analyze operating detectors and...Show More Summary
(Tomsk Polytechnic University) Engineering works within the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider include the enhancement of the capacity of operating detectors. A research team of Tomsk Polytechnic University (Russia) is testing at CERN next generation detectors based on synthetic diamonds, which will be able to withstand the enhanced intensity of proton beam by a factor of 10.
The beam pipes of the LHC need to be so clean, even air molecules count as dirt. The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s most powerful accelerator. Inside, beams of particles sprint 17 miles around in opposite directions through a pair...Show More Summary
Thanks to CERN and their work in detecting the Higgs Boson using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), there has been a surge of interest among many to learn more about the basic building blocks of the Universe. CERN could do it due to the immense power of the LHC — capable of reaching a beam energy of almost 14TeV. Show More Summary
Protons are jostling for space in the Large Hadron Collider. Since the start of the physics run on 23 May, the operators of the huge accelerator have been increasing the intensity of the beams, injecting more and more protons in order to increase the number of collisions.
Quark-gluon plasmas are among the most extensively researched subjects by physicists in recent times. Thanks to the largest particle accelerators in operation today, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Europe and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in the United States, it is now possible to reproduce a quark-gluon plasma in the laboratory.

Called the Future Circular Collider, the planned particle accelerator will also be seven times more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider.
An international league of scientists is kicking off the decades-long process of developing the successor to the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
(University of Plymouth) Data generated by the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator -- the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland -- are to be transformed into music through a ground-breaking project involving researchers at the University of Plymouth, the MIT Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
For almost a decade, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been enabling scientists to develop a greater understanding of – and, in some cases, rewrite – the laws of physics.
The fifth annual Large Hadron Collider Physics (LHCP2017) conference was held last week at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China. This year there were more participants than ever before: 470 people from universities across the globe. ATLAS presented an interesting set of new results exploiting the high statistics of the combined 2015 and 2016 dataset. Show More Summary
The big news this week: two new adorable foster kittens in the house! Oh, I guess you were thinking of physics news. Well, there was plenty of that, too: the Large Hadron Collider is back in action, the first bunch...
After receiving a few upgrades, including a power boost and better cameras, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is once again ready for business and will soon start providing scientists with glorious, glorious particle data for "the first time in 2017". More »
Protons are colliding once again in the Large Hadron Collider. This morning at CERN, operators nudged two high-energy beams of protons into a collision course inside the world’s largest and most energetic particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider. Show More Summary
Last week, the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) witnessed their first collisions of 2017. These test collisions were not for physics research, instead they were produced as part of the process of restarting the LHC. But have patience, data taking for physics will start in another few days.
DOE and CERN last week signed three new agreements outlining the contributions CERN will make to the Fermilab neutrino program and DOE’s contributions to the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider upgrade program.
At a ceremony today, CERN1 inaugurated its linear accelerator, Linac 4, the newest accelerator acquisition since the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Linac 4 is due to feed the CERN accelerator complex with particle beams of higher energy, which will allow the LHC to reach higher luminosity by 2021. Show More Summary
