A decades-long quest for the elusive Higgs boson has sparked a creative rush in music, with compositions ranging from a-capella and rap to a hypnotic symphony.
Ten Iowa State University physicists have their names on a new paper describing how the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider has observed a new particle in the search for the Higgs boson.
Scientists who searched for the famous Higgs Boson concluded a three-day brainstorming session on Wednesday for mapping a long-term global strategy for particle physics.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists working on the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC have just published results of the first analysis of data from the highest energy particle collisions ever carried out, bringing us another step closer ...
The governing council of the world's top particle physics lab has unanimously voted to accept Israel as a full member.
The European Organisation for Nuclear Research said Friday it may announce next month whether tests with its atom-smasher have found the elusive "God particle".
Scientists have restarted the world's most powerful atom-smasher overnight, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said Sunday, as they launch a new bid to uncover the secrets of the universe.
(Phys.org) -- Experiments using heavy ions at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are advancing understanding of the primordial universe. The ALICE, ATLAS and CMS collaborations have made new measurements of the kind of matter ...
If a technical alert goes off at CERN, it will almost certainly show up on one of Chris Wetton's 15 screens in the CERN Control Centre. Wetton is a member of the Technical Infrastructure Operation group, an eight-strong team ...
Heartened by a glimpse of what may be the Higgs boson, scientists at the CERN physics lab are smashing particles with new vigour in a quest to understand why matter has mass and other riddles of the natural universe.
