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.
The newest addition to reality is an exotic hadron, one scientists think might be born at the heart of collapsing stars.
With the Large Hadron Collider back up and running, it’s smashing particles day and night. The machine’s latest discovery: a brand new form of matter known as a pentaquark, composed partially of anti-matter.
Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva appears to have proved the existence of particles made of five quarks, solving a 50-year-old puzzle about the building blocks of matter, scientists said on Tuesday. Quarks are the tiny ingredients of sub-atomic particles such as protons and neutrons, which are made of three quarks. Show More Summary
SCIENCE: Hadron Collider Scientists Stumble Upon ‘Pentaquark’ Particle: Discovery could shed new light on how everyday matter is constituted. Scientists using Europe’s Large Hadron Collider atom-smashing machine have stumbled on theShow More Summary
Today, the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider has reported the discovery of a class of particles known as pentaquarks.
A new kind of subatomic particle called the pentaquark has been detected for the first time, the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced today. The lab, known by its French acronym CERN, said the findings were made by a team of scientists working on one of the four experiments at...
CERN's LHC (Large Hadron Collider) has discovered a new subatomic particle, the pentaquark. "The pentaquark is not just any new particle," said LHCb spokesperson Guy Wilkinson. "It represents a way to aggregate quarks, namely the fundamental...Show More Summary
Today, CERN, home of the world’s large particle accelerator, announced that it had observed a new particle: the pentaquark. One of the experiments on the Large Hadron Collider called LHCb (Large Hadron Collider beauty) reported thatShow More Summary

After restarting to run at higher power than ever, the Large Hadron Collider has made its first proper discovery. Today, a team of scientists announced that they’ve found a new class of sub-atomic particles known as pentaquarks. Read more...
Pioneering physicist Ernest O. Lawrence transformed American science over nearly three decades. The inventor of the cyclotron, the ancestor of such advanced machines as Europe's Large Hadron Collider, Lawrence placed UC Berkeley in the forefront of high-energy physics. He single-handedly saved...
