Atom smasher achieves 'Big Bang' collisions (Update)
Scientists at the world's biggest atom smasher on Tuesday started colliding particles at record energy levels, opening a new era in the quest for the universe's deepest secrets.
Roll over Einstein: Law of physics challenged (Update 3)
One of the very pillars of physics and Einstein's theory of relativity - that nothing can go faster than the speed of light - was rocked Thursday by new findings from one of the world's foremost laboratories.
New type of nuclear fission discovered
CERN scientists to announce proof of Higgs boson found (Update)
Physicists say they have all but proven that the "God particle" exists. They have a footprint and a shadow, and the only thing left is to see for themselves the elusive subatomic particle believed to give ...
Repulsive gravity as an alternative to dark energy (Part 2: In the quantum vacuum)
CERN physicists trap antihydrogen atoms for more than 16 minutes (w/ video)
Trapping antihydrogen atoms at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has become so routine that physicists are confident that they can soon begin experiments on this rare antimatter equivalent ...
CERN physicists report strong evidence of Higgs boson (w/ live video from CERN)
Two independent teams at the world's biggest atom smasher say they have both "observed" a new subatomic particle a boson that looks just like the one believed to give all matter in the universe ...
Now confident: CERN physicists say new particle is Higgs boson (Update 3)
Physicists said Thursday they are now confident they have discovered a crucial subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson—a major discovery that will go a long ways toward helping them explain why the universe ...
Einstein was right, neutrino researchers admit
Scientists on Friday said that an experiment which challenged Einstein's theory on the speed of light had been flawed and that sub-atomic particles -- like everything else -- are indeed bound by the universe's ...
Physicists create tabletop antimatter 'gun'
First experimental signs of a New Physics beyond the Standard Model
The Standard Model, which has given the most complete explanation up to now of the universe, has gaps, and is unable to explain phenomena like dark matter or gravitational interaction between particles. Physicists ...
Coldest Antimatter Ever Produced
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists working at the CERN nuclear research lab on the border of Switzerland and France have generated the coldest particles of antimatter ever recorded.
Four reasons why the quantum vacuum may explain dark matter
Large Hadron Collider 7 TeV experiment on March 30
(PhysOrg.com) -- With beams routinely circulating in the Large Hadron Collider at 3.5 TeV, the highest energy yet achieved in a particle accelerator, CERN has set the date for the start of the LHC research ...
