NSAC to recommend closing BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider facility
Physicist creates scale model of LHC ATLAS experiment of out LEGO blocks
A hint of Higgs: An update from the LHC
The physics world was abuzz with some tantalizing news a couple of weeks ago. At a meeting of the European Physical Society in Grenoble, France, physicists -- including some from Caltech -- announced that ...
Physicists offer a solution to the puzzle of the origin of matter in the universe
Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. That asymmetry, which favors matter to a very small degree, ...
Antihelium-4: Physicists nab new record for heaviest antimatter
(PhysOrg.com) -- Members of the international STAR collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider -- a particle accelerator used to recreate and study conditions of the early universe at the U.S. Department ...
Riddle of 'God particle' could be solved by 2012: CERN (Update)
Physicists said on Tuesday they believed that by the end of 2012 they could determine whether a theorised particle called the Higgs boson, which has unleashed a gruelling decades-long hunt, exists or not.
Physicists observe antihelium-4 nucleus, the heaviest antinucleus yet
Large Hadron Collider smashes another record
The world's biggest particle collider set a new record early Monday, a feat that should accelerate the quest to pinpoint the elusive particle known as the Higgs Boson, a senior physicist said.
Discovery of new subatomic particle sheds light on fundamental force of nature
The discovery of a new particle will "transform our understanding" of the fundamental force of nature that binds the nuclei of atoms, researchers argue.
The Wild West of physics
Call it macro-micro physics: the study of the huge paired with the study of the very, very small.
Large Hadron Collider powers up to unravel mysteries of nature
Outside the small village of Meyrin, Switzerland, horses graze quietly in fields lined by the Jura mountains. You'd never know it by the idyllic landscape, but 300 feet below the Swiss-French border, the Large ...
Possible signs of the Higgs remain in latest analyses (Update)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Two experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have nearly eliminated the space in which the Higgs boson could dwell, scientists announced in a seminar held at CERN today. However, the ATLAS ...
Searching for Susy: Collider to push physics frontier
Excitement is mounting at the world's largest proton smasher, where scientists are close to launching a superpowered hunt for particles that may change our understanding of the Universe.
Hunt for dark matter closes in at Large Hadron Collider
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists are closer than ever to finding the source of the Universe's mysterious dark matter, following a better than expected year of research at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) particle ...
