No opponent is too big for a tenacious weasel.
The Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland is humanity's most powerful scientific instrument. It cost $7 billion to build, comprises a 17-mile track wherein protons are smashed together at near-light speeds, and will soon be used...Show More Summary
A tiny mammal has reportedly brought the world’s largest scientific experiment to a halt. The Large Hadron Collider suffered a power outage last night, after a luckless weasel decided to chew on a 66-kilovolt power cable. Read more....
The Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland is offline, following a run-in with a small mammal that munched on a power cord.
The Large Hadron Collider has suffered a power outage after the unfortunate critter chewed on a 66 kilovolt electrical transformer
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, has been releasing portions of its research to the public for years. This week's massive 300 terabyte dump of Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data is the biggest yet by a long shot -- and it's all out there, open source, free for the exploration. (more…)
A smashing offer from the scientists at CERN.
It includes data on 250 trillion particle collisions.
The Large Hadron Collider is gearing up to try to confirm hints of an unexpected new particle, and there could be an unorthodox new way to spot it
CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the biggest, most powerful particle accelerator in the world, made headlines when it facilitated the discovery of the Higgs boson particle, but it's produced so much more data than just that one attention-grabber. Show More Summary
A huge amount of high-quality data on the Large Hadron Collider has been published online by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
Yesterday, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) dropped a staggering amount of raw data from the Large Hadron Collider on the internet for anyone to use: 300 terabytes worth. Read more...
When physicists at the Large Hadron Collider announced the detection of a possible, unexpected new particle last December, we advised caution, since most such hints go away when more data comes in. We won’t know for sure until this winter whether it’s real, or just random noise in the data masquerading as a signal. Show More Summary
Scientifically illiterate conspiracy theorists are fretting over a physics experiment the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will carry out at the end of April.
When CERN's Large Hadron Collider is fired up again at the end of April, physicists won't just be testing for unknown particles. They'll also be testing a new FAQ page, and it's an unusual one that distances CERN from demons and Satan. Since the LHC began smashing particles together, conspiracy...
Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland may have detected a new massive particle that spits out two photons as it decays. A “mysterious bump” in photon production was detected in two independent cases. Scientists got busy “checking, cross-checking and rechecking the data” and concluded that the blip may not be random.

The Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator failed to confirm the Tevatron accelerator’s discovery of a new arrangement of quarks. Continue reading ? The post New tetraquark particle sparks doubts appeared first on PBS NewsHour.
Compatible and sustainable software could revolutionize high-energy physics research. The World Wide Web may have been invented at CERN, but it was raised and cultivated abroad. Now a group of Large Hadron Collider physicists are looking...Show More Summary
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which helped scientists discover the Higgs boson, is a huge instrument buried under the Swiss-French border. It needs 27 kilometers of track to accelerate particles close to the speed of light before smashing them together. Show More Summary
CERN physicist Edda Gschwendtner explains why we need big machines to study tiny particles. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is a whopping 27 kilometers in circumference. Edda Gschwendtner, physicist and project leader for CERN's plasma...Show More Summary
