Physicist helps write the (very big) book on two major physics experiments
Soeren Prell reached for the bookshelf behind his desk and pulled down a binder thick and heavy with 900 pages documenting the lives and discoveries of two major physics experiments.
Unexpected data from the Large Hadron Collider suggest the collisions may be producing a new type of matter
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced surprising behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions. The new observation suggests the collisions ...
