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.
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.
Testing technicolor physics
(PhysOrg.com) -- As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) ramps up the rate and impact of its collisions, physicists hope to witness the emergence of the Higgs boson, an anticipated, but as-yet-unseen, fundamental ...

Primordial weirdness: Did the early universe have 1 dimension?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension? That's the mind-boggling concept at the heart of a theory that University at Buffalo physicist Dejan Stojkovic and colleagues proposed in 2010.
Another universe tugging on ours? Maybe not, researchers say
(PhysOrg.com) -- A new study from the University at Buffalo contradicts the dark flow theory, showing that exploding stars in different parts of the universe do not appear to be moving in sync. Working with ...

One of the key theories underpinning modern physics is being tested by the latest results from the LHCs ATLAS experiment.
The Year of the Higgs?
This February, researchers will renew their search for one of the universe's most elusive mysteries, the Higgs boson--a hypothetical particle that if found would give an insight into why particles have certain mass.
Researchers continue search for elusive new particles at CERN
Though sought at much higher energies than before, researchers at Texas Tech University associated with a Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERNs Large Hadron Collider (LHC) continue to seek the elusive new ...
Physics experiment suggests existence of new particle
(PhysOrg.com) -- The results of a high-profile Fermilab physics experiment involving a University of Michigan professor appear to confirm strange 20-year-old findings that poke holes in the standard model, suggesting the ...
Measurement scientists set a new standard in 3-D ears
Scientists at the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have developed a means of representing a 3D model ear, to help redefine the standard for a pinna simulator (the pinna is the outer part of the ear) ...
Hunting the Neutrino-less Double Decay: Students May Not Win the Nobel, But It's an Internship to Remember
