Large Hadron Collider starts up again after two-year upgrade
The world's largest particle smasher restarted Sunday after a two-year upgrade that will allow physicists to explore uncharted corners of what makes up the universe, including dark matter and antimatter.
Physicists tune Large Hadron Collider to find 'sweet spot' in high-energy proton smasher
Start up of the world's largest science experiment is underway—with protons traveling in opposite directions at almost the speed of light in the deep underground tunnel called the Large Hadron Collider ...
Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider smashes record for polarized proton luminosity
The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a powerful particle accelerator for nuclear physics research at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, just shattered its own record for ...
Particle smasher set for weekend startup, says CERN
The world's biggest particle collider is set to restart this weekend after a two-year upgrade, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said Thursday.
CERN researchers confirm existence of the Force
Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider just recently started testing the accelerator for running at the higher energy of 13 TeV, and already they have found new insights into the fundamental structure ...
World's largest particle collider ready to restart in 'days'
Physicists have fixed a short-circuit at the world's largest proton smasher, making the particle-hunting machine ready for a restart "within days' time" after a two-year shutdown.
Short circuit delays particle hunter machine restart
A short-circuit at the world's largest proton smasher has indefinitely delayed the particle-hunting machine's planned restart, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said on Wednesday.
Video: How do black holes evaporate?
Nothing lasts forever, not even black holes. According to Stephen Hawking, black holes will evaporate over vast periods of time. But how, exactly, does this happen?
New magnet at Fermilab achieves high-field milestone
Last month, a new superconducting magnet developed and fabricated at Fermilab reached its design field of 11.5 Tesla at a temperature nearly as cold as outer space. It is the first successful twin-aperture ...
US scientists celebrate the restart of the Large Hadron Collider
Earlier today, the world's most powerful particle accelerator began its second act. After two years of upgrades and repairs, proton beams once again circulated around the Large Hadron Collider, located at ...
Physicists energized about restart of Large Hadron Collider
When Kevin McDermott and Susan Dittmer talk about what they might discover when their particle detector goes back online in Switzerland, it's a little like talking to a 5-year-old on Christmas Eve.
How particle accelerator maths helped me fix my Wi-Fi
Electromagnetic radiation – it might sound like something that you'd be better off avoiding, but electromagnetic waves of various kinds underpin our senses and how we interact with the world – from the ...
Minor glitch delays restart of Large Hadron Collider
Officials say a minor glitch will delay the re-start of Europe's multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider either a couple of days or more than a month.
