One Physicist's Quest for New Physics Beyond Einstein and the LHC

2 weeks agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

All eyes are currently on the upgraded Large Hadron Collider as it ramps up its hunt for new physics. But some physicists are already looking beyond and pinning their hopes on an even bigger machine, four times the size of the LHC. One of them is Nima Arkani-Hamed, the subject of a recent extensive profile by Natalie Wolchover at Quanta. Read more...

Claims about cars

New high-end cars are among the most sophisticated machines on the planet, containing 100 million or more lines of code. Compare that with about 60 million lines of code in all of Facebook or 50 million in the Large Hadron Collider. The Gelles, Tabuchi, and Dolan NYT piece is interesting throughout.  I thought of a […]

CERN: "The Fundamental Symmetry of the Universe Confirmed" (Week's Most Popular)

Scientists working with ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), a heavy-ion detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ring, have made precise measurements of particle mass and electric charge that confirm the existence of a fundamental symmetry in nature. The...

Integrate, catalog, and preserve metadata

During a special edition of The O’Reilly Podcast, host and O’Reilly chief data scientist Ben Lorica interviewed Dr. Clare Bernard, a former particle physicist at CERN, who worked on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Bernard is now …

CERN: "Confirms the Fundamental Symmetry of the Universe"

Scientists working with ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), a heavy-ion detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ring, have made precise measurements of particle mass and electric charge that confirm the existence of a fundamental symmetry in nature. The...

Watch Deerhoof Play Inside the World's Largest Particle Collider

Deerhoof are the first band to play inside of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

Large Hadron Collider’s Magnetic Field May Attract Asteroids To Earth, Conspiracy Theorists Claim

Conspiracy theorists are claiming that the Large Hadron Collider’s strong magnetic fields may be powerful enough to pull asteroids from the sky, sending them plummeting toward Earth. The Large Hadron Collider has been the source of concern...Show More Summary

Deerhoof Perform at the Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider is a giant particle accelerator built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva, Switzerland. Since its completion in 2008, it's been used to conduct groundbreaking experiments inShow More Summary

A 'New Physics' Postcard from the LHC's Earliest Days

The latest source of intrigue from the Large Hadron Collider traces all the way back to 2011/2012 and the experiment's opening salvos of accelerated protons. According to results posted to the arXiv pre-print server and slated for publication...Show More Summary

RT's '10 Mind-Blowing Facts About the Large Hadron Collider' Is Amazing Garbage

The completely legitimate and always hard-hitting news organization RT has some concerns about the Large Hadron Collider. Turns out that its conspiracy mindedness and pandering extends all the way down to subatomic scales, where theShow More Summary

Large Hadron Collider Experiment Lands a Blow on Physics' Standard Model

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.

Michigan Newspaper Claims LHC Is Being Used as a "Stargate"

last monthTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

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

'Littlest' quark-gluon plasma revealed by physicists using Large Hadron Collider

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.

Why you need to pay attention to Switzerland as a startup nation

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.

Combined results find Higgs still standard

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

Tread Carefully Around the Hype: Leptons Behaving Badly at the LHC

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

Possible new particle hints that universe may not be left-handed

The possible discovery of a boson at the Large Hadron Collider suggests a restoration of symmetry between two simple things: left and right

High-energy LHC plans held up by UFOs and electron clouds

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 CERN makes precise comparison of light nuclei and antinuclei

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

A Private High-Speed Network Will Help Researchers Do Better Science

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

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.
