"Unlocking the Cosmos" --China to Trump CERN's Large Hadron Collider (Weekend Feature)

The plane's race in on to reveal a new physics beyond the Standard Model and the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism as well as clues to understanding dark matter and supersymmetry, with China's announcement this past fall that it's planning to build an...

CERN needs to figure out which 9,000 cables to disconnect for LHC upgrade

You thought untangling the rat’s nest of cabling behind your computer was pain? That’s nothing compared to what scientists at CERN are dealing with as they prepare for the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) […]

Our imperfect vacuum

The emptiest parts of the universe aren’t so empty after all. In the Large Hadron Collider, two beams of protons race around a 17-mile ring more than 1 million times before slamming into each other inside the massive particle detectors. But...Show More Summary

Large Hadron Collider Measurements --"Point to Fundamental Symmetry of the Universe" (Today's Most Popular)

This past August, scientists working with CERN's ALICE (a Large Ion Collider Experiment), a heavy-ion detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ring, made precise measurements of particle mass and electric charge that confirm the existence of a fundamental symmetry...

Physicists offer theories to explain mysterious collision at Large Hadron Collider

An unexpected bump in data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider is causing physicists to theorize about what caused it -- with potentially exciting results. Physicists are offering theories about what it could mean.

Mysterious Vortex Appears Over Large Hadron Collider Particle Accelerator, Did Scientists Create An Interdimensional Portal?

Tourists from the United States claim that a strange vortex appeared over Switzerland while they were on vacation. They captured the strange moment on camera, which seems to show a bright orb entering the vortex before disappearing completely. Show More Summary

World's Physicists Probe New Mystery Signal at CERN's Large Hadron Collider

"It was so weird that people were forced to chuck their favorite theories and start from scratch," says Adam Martin, assistant professor of physics at the University of Notre Dame about an unusual bump that appeared in the signal of...

UFO Over Large Hadron Collider and a Bump in its Signal

It seems like whenever anything happens near Geneva, Switzerland, these days (and by ‘near’ we mean within a 500 mile radius, including straight up), it gets blamed on the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) lab. That was the case recently when...

Physicists offer theories to explain mysterious collision at Large Hadron Collider

Physicists around the world were puzzled recently when an unusual bump appeared in the signal of the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator, causing them to wonder if it was a new particle previously unknown, or perhaps even two new particles.

A UFO portal was filmed over the Large Hadron Collider.

More Higgs particles can be found by studying superfluid helium

In 2012, a proposed observation of the Higgs boson was reported at the Large Hadron Collider in CERN. The observation has puzzled the physics community, as the mass of the observed particle, 125 GeV, looks lighter than the expected energy scale, about 1 TeV. Show More Summary

Orb UFO Filmed Entering Inter-dimensional Portal Over Large Hadron Collider In Switzerland, According to Conspiracy Theorists [Video]

Footage has gone viral online purportedly showing the moment that a bright orb UFO flies straight into the swirling vortex of an inter-dimensional portal that appeared in the sky over the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) facility built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva, Switzerland. Show More Summary

Mysterious LHC Photons Have Physicists Searching for Answers

Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider reported an unusual bump in their signal. But this time, they have no idea where the bump came from. The post Mysterious LHC Photons Have Physicists Searching for Answers appeared first on WIRED.

What a 'CERN' for agricultural science could look like

The Large Hadron Collider, a.k.a. CERN, found success in a simple idea: Invest in a laboratory that no one institution could sustain on their own and then make it accessible for physicists around the world. Astronomers have done the same with telescopes, while neuroscientists are collaborating to build brain imaging observatories. Show More Summary

The Large Hadron Collider Gets An Upgrade

Physicists have high hopes for the LHC's second run. The post The Large Hadron Collider Gets An Upgrade appeared first on WIRED.

Fabiola Gianotti Becomes First Woman Physicist to Take the Reins at CERN

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Particle physicist Fabiola Gianotti has become the first woman to head CERN, the organization based in Switzerland that is home to the Large Hadron Collider. She succeeds outgoing director-general Rolf Heuer, who oversaw the laboratory’s operations for the last seven years. Read more...

Don’t Get Too Excited Yet About the LHC’s Hint of a New Particle 

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Earlier this week, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider announced they’d found tantalizing traces of a possible new fundamental particle — perhaps a heavier cousin of the Higgs boson, or the elusive graviton, a quantum carrier of the force of gravity. Read more...

LHC ends 2015 with a cliffhanger

Two LHC experiments see an unexpected bump, but scientists need more data to figure out whether it's worth getting excited about. The final Large Hadron Collider results of the year are in. A new and unexpected bump in the data has left...Show More Summary

If, and really only if…

On December 15, at the End-of-the-Year seminar, the CMS and ATLAS experiments from CERN presented their first results using the brand new data accumulated in 2015 since the restart of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at 13 TeV, the highest operating energy so far. Although the data sample is still only one tenth of what

CERN Physicists May Have Found Another New Particle

First, scientists experimenting with CERN's Large Hadron Collider discovered the Higgs boson. Next came the possible discovery of pentaquarks. Now, scientists may have detected a new, unknown particle. Working from June to mid-November, two CERN teams, Atlas and CMS—each powered by 3,000 physicists—spotted excess pairs of gamma...
