New shield makes certain types of searches for physics beyond Standard Model possible for first time
The Standard Model of particle physics, sometimes called "The Theory of Almost Everything," is the best set of equations to date that describes the universe's fundamental particles and how they interact. ...
Three-decade quest backs physics' 'Standard Model'
Scientists on Wednesday said that after a nearly three-decade bid they had detected a telltale change in a sub-atomic particle, further backing a key theory about the Universe.

Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
A Higgs-gravity connection may leave traces in white dwarfs
Best of Last Week – New model for dark matter, Martian clouds and mind to mind conversing
'Tunneling of the third kind' experiment could search for new physics
Phase transition may explain how brain neurons encode information
World's best measurement of W boson mass tests Standard Model, Higgs boson limits
(PhysOrg.com) -- Just as firemen use different methods to narrow the location of a person trapped in a building, scientists employ two techniques to find the hiding place of the theorized Higgs particle: direct ...
Particle physics discovery raises hope for a theory of everything
The standard model of particle physics, which describes every particle we know of and how they interact, was given much credence when the Higgs boson was discovered in 2012. Now, measurements of a rare part ...
Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
Possible discovery in 2015 of a new particle in physics
The world's largest atom-smasher could help physicists understand mysterious dark matter in the universe, and later this year it may offer a discovery even more fascinating than the Higgs-Boson, researchers ...
The dark side of cosmology
It's a beautiful theory: the standard model of cosmology describes the universe using just six parameters. But it is also strange. The model predicts that dark matter and dark energy – two mysterious entities ...
Quantum computer as detector shows space is not squeezed
Ever since Einstein proposed his special theory of relativity in 1905, physics and cosmology have been based on the assumption that space looks the same in all directions - that it's not squeezed in one direction ...
