By now, you might be familiar with the concept of particle accelerators through the work of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the monstrous accelerator that enabled scientists to detect the Higgs boson. But the LHC is not alone — the world is equipped with more than 3o,000 particle accelerators that are used for a seemingly endless variety of tasks. Show More Summary
While Canadians were winning medals at the Olympics in Rio de Janiero this summer, MoEDAL (pronounced "medal"), the only Canadian-led experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, celebrated its first published results.
(Phys.org)—Although the Large Hadron Collider's enormous 13 TeV energy is more than sufficient to detect many particles that theorists have predicted to exist, no new particles have been discovered since the Higgs boson in 2012. While...Show More Summary
Two separate experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, on the French-Swiss border, appear to confirm the existence of a subatomic particle, the Madala boson, that for the first time could shed light on...
Matter and antimatter should have wiped each other out at the universe's birth. The upgraded Large Hadron Collider aims to find why matter alone survived
Scientists studying data from the Large Hadron Collider experiment have announced further evidence of pentaquarks, a new type of particle discovered by scientists in 2015 after a half-century of searching.
A strange video circulating online shows what looks like a human sacrifice ritual in Geneva at the CERN laboratory, known best for the Large Hadron Collider.
Frank Wilczek bet Garrett Lisi that the Large Hadron Collider would see evidence of supersymmetry, a theory that goes beyond the standard model of particle physics
Hints of a surprise particle at the Large Hadron Collider have officially been confirmed as a blip, and finding another could take years or decades
As the Large Hadron Collider's first sign of a superparticle melts away, physicists must contemplate their nightmare scenario, says Gavin Hesketh
It’s been a rough few weeks of null results for physicists. First, a promising underground experiment failed to find evidence of dark matter. Then news broke that the Large Hadron Collider hadn’t discovered an exciting new particle after all. Read more...
Dennis Overbye in the New York Times covers this week’s news from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, where hopes of “new physics” beyond the Higgs boson are not panning out: “The Particle That Wasn’t”. The Higgs, one of the heaviestShow More Summary
There was disappointing news for particle physicists when the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider reported that the signal for a possible new particle had done away. Also, a new model for gunshot blood spatter, particle accelerators...
PRETTY PIECE OF FLESH. Not to be outdone by former nemesis Orlando Bloom, nude photos of Justin Bieber leak onto the internet (again). NATIONAL UNDERWEAR DAY. Celebrate with 50 Cent. VIDEO OF THE DAY. Hillary Clinton faces 40 years of...Show More Summary
Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider reveal that mounds of data did not support the possibility of a new particle.
Last December CERN announced a collection of unexpected observations at the Large Hadron Collider. Scientists quickly submitted over 500 papers, each inventing a new way to explain the observations, which seemed to challenge the foundations of the long-standing but tottering...
Possible signs of new particle seem to have washed out in an influx of new data. A curious anomaly seen by two Large Hadron Collider experiments is now looking like a statistical fluctuation. The anomaly—an unanticipated excess of photon...Show More Summary
Well, shoot. It’s been confirmed that early hints of a possible exotic new particle at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland have vanished. That disappointing news was announced this morning at physics conference in Chicago. Read more...
Results from the CMS and ATLAS collaborations were due today, but a paper accidentally posted last night reveals the Large Hadron Collider is yet to find new particles
The Higgs appeared in the second run of the LHC about twice as fast as it did in the first. The Higgs boson is peeking out of the new data collected during the second run of the Large Hadron Collider, scientists reported today at the...Show More Summary
