LHC filled with liquid helium

The Large Hadron Collider is now cooled to nearly its operational temperature. The Large Hadron Collider isn’t just a cool particle accelerator. It's the coldest. Last week the cryogenics team at CERN finished filling the eight curved sections of the LHC with liquid helium. Show More Summary

CERN gets ready to smash more protons together

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is once again getting ready to smash protons together, hoping to find evidence of elusive and exotic particles that have never been detected before.

Physicists explain puzzling particle collisions

An anomaly spotted at the Large Hadron Collider has prompted scientists to reconsider a mathematical description of the underlying physics. By considering two forces that are distinct in everyday life but unified under extreme conditions, they have simplified one description of the interactions of elementary particles. Show More Summary

First LHC magnets prepped for restart

A first set of superconducting magnets has passed the test and is ready for the Large Hadron Collider to restart in spring. This week, one-eighth of the LHC dipole magnets reached the energy they’ll need to operate in 2015. Engineers at CERN powered 154 superconducting magnets to a current of around 11,000 amps.

Vacuuming the ATLAS detector

One hundred scientists and engineers recently gave the ATLAS detector a deep cleaning in preparation for the Large Hadron Collider restart. No, they’re not Ghost Busters looking for paranormal activity. Nor are they the last human survivors...Show More Summary

The Large Hadron Collider's Circuits Just Got Run Through A Dishwasher

Film critic Roger Ebert, Hamas informant Mosab Hassan Yousef and the scientists behind the Large Hadron Collider are some of the subjects of documentaries nominated by the Producers Guild of America for its 2015 awards.

It's particle-hunting season! Scientists launch Higgs Hunters Project

Scientists have launched the Higgs Hunters project, which will allow members of the general public to study images recorded at the Large Hadron Collider and to help search for previously unobserved particles.

Needed: citizen scientists for Higgs hunt

A new project asks citizen scientists for help finding unknown Higgs boson decays in LHC data from the ATLAS experiment. Just days after the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider released a large batch of data to the public, the...Show More Summary

CERN's letting everyone look at its Large Hadron Collider data

Life can he hard for the armchair particle physicist, forever knowing that other people have their own Large Hadron Collider and you don't. Thankfully, the folks at CERN remember what it was like not to have a LHC of their own, which is why the...

Searching for the A boson with CMS

I am quite happy to report today that the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider has just published a new search which fills a gap in studies of extended Higgs boson sectors. It is a search for the decay of the A boson into Zh pairs, where the Z in turn decays to […]

Two More Particles Spotted At Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider has helped staff spot two previously unseen particles. Both are known as baryons and are made up of three quarks. The two baryons have the somewhat uncatchy names of  Xi_b’- and Xi_b-. The existence of both had previously been predicted by the quark model, but they had yet to be seen in […]

CERN frees LHC data

Anyone can access collision data from the Large Hadron Collider through the new CERN Open Data Portal. Today CERN launched its Open Data Portal, which makes data from real collision events produced by LHC experiments available to the...Show More Summary

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider discover two new supermassive particles

Clearly, we still have a lot more to learn about the universe: The Large Hadron Collider, famed for its discovery of the Higgs boson, has discovered two new subatomic particles. Known as Xi_b'- and Xi_b-, the two particles had previously...Show More Summary

Scientists discover two new particles at Large Hadron Collider

Welcome to the family! Scientists using CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Europe have discovered two new subatomic particles.

Two New Subatomic Particles Have Been Discovered At CERN

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Particle physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider have detected two new subatomic particles that were predicted to exist but never seen. The discovery of the two new baryon particles stands to deepen our understanding of the universe. Read more...

LHCb experiment finds new particles

A new LHCb result adds two new composite particles to the quark model. Today the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of two new particles, each consisting of three quarks. The particles, known as the Xi_b'- and Xi_b-, were predicted to exist by the quark model but had never been observed. Show More Summary

A Radically New Particle Accelerator Could Have 500 Times The Power

If you know anything about the Large Hadron Collider, you know that it is huge. Massive. 17 miles of tunnels under Switzerland. Traditional accelerators need all that space to get particles to smash into each other at close to the speed of light. Show More Summary

The LHC Will Produce 400PB Of Data Every Year

At the Large Hadron Collider, some serious science goes down. So serious, in fact, that the facility plans to ratchet up its data collection to the point where it’s creating a staggering 400PB of data every year. More »
