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.
'Faster-than-light' particles fade after cross-check
Neutrinos do not go faster than light, according to fresh measurements of a test last year that had suggested the particles broke the Universe's speed limit, CERN said on Friday.
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.
Getting to know the strong force, one of the four fundamental forces of the universe
(PhysOrg.com) -- In new work, high-energy physicists have observed two long-sought quantum states in the bottomonium family of sub-atomic particles. The result will help researchers better understand one of ...
Study finds there may be multiple 'God particles'
Researchers find it would require 2.4 times less energy to create a black hole than thought
Physics group looks ahead past LHC to LEP3
'Faster-than-light' particles spark science drama
Oh Albert. Did you get it wrong? In 2011, physics was shaken by an experiment which said the Universe's speed limit, enshrined by Einstein in his 1905 theory of special relativity, could be broken.
CERN atom-smasher restarts after 14-month hiatus: official
The world's biggest atom-smasher, shut down after its inauguration in September 2008 amid technical faults, restarted on Friday, a spokesman for the European Organisation for Nuclear Research said.
Cosmic rays are really sub-atomic particles, being mainly protons (hydrogen nuclei) and occasionally helium or heavier atomic nuclei and very occasionally electrons. Cosmic ray particles are very energetic ...
For India, 'God particle' is as much boson as Higgs
The release Wednesday of dramatic new data pointing to the existence of the Higgs boson "God particle" sent a special flutter of pride, mixed with frustration, through India's scientific community.
Atomic core, shaken not stirred
When struck just right, protons and neutrons ring. The sub-atomic particles dont jingle like when a hammer hits a bell. But they do jiggle in an odd dance where the protons move in one direction and ...
Giant atom-smasher set to restart this weekend: CERN
The world's biggest atom-smasher, which was shut down soon after its inauguration amid technical faults, is set to restart this weekend, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research said on Friday.
