Researchers first to observe Higgs boson analogue in superconductors
The Nobel Prize-winning discovery of the Higgs boson - the "God particle" believed responsible for all the mass in the universe - took place in 2012 at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, an underground facility ...
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, ...
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.
Firing up the proton smasher
The Large Hadron Collider is being brought back to life, ready for Run II of the "world's greatest physics experiment". Cambridge physicists are among the army who keep it alive.
