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.

Unexpected data from the Large Hadron Collider suggest the collisions may be producing a new type of matter
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced surprising behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions. The new observation suggests the collisions ...

Evidence for a new nuclear 'magic number'
Researchers have come one step closer to understanding unstable atomic nuclei. A team of researchers from RIKEN, the University of Tokyo and other institutions in Japan and Italy has provided evidence for ...
Particle physicists measure the spin contribution of the proton's antiquark
What causes a proton to spin? This fundamental question has been a longstanding mystery in particle physics, although it was once thought that the answer would be fairly straightforward: The spin of a proton's ...

Computation leads to better understanding of influenza virus replication
Treating influenza relies on drugs such as Amantadine that are becoming less and less effective due to viral evolution. But University of Chicago scientists have published computational results that may give ...

Graphene, impermeable to all gases and liquids, can easily allow protons to pass through it, University of Manchester researchers have found.
Physicists propose molecular clock to expose new physics
Electron's negativity cut in half by supercomputer
(PhysOrg.com) -- While physicists at the Large Hadron Collider smash together thousands of protons and other particles to see what matter is made of, they're never going to hurl electrons at each other. No ...
Scientists discover a surprising new way that protons can move among molecules
When a proton the bare nucleus of a hydrogen atom transfers from one molecule to another, or moves within a molecule, the result is a hydrogen bond, in which the proton and another atom like ...
