One of the largest projects being undertaken at the CERN research center near Geneva - the ATLAS Experiment - is about to be upgraded. ATLAS played a crucial role in the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. With a length ...
A citizen science project, called HiggsHunters gives everyone the chance to help search for the Higgs boson's relatives.
From techno beats to classical melodies, from jazz swinging to pop and rock riffs – the ATLAS experiment can play them all thanks to Quantizer.
In 2012 CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) discovered the Higgs boson, the 'missing piece' in the jigsaw of particles predicted by the Standard Model.
Next week, the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be back in action, taking data for the accelerator's second run. The detectors were shut down two years ago for maintenance and refurbishment in preparation ...
New York University scientists and their colleagues have launched the Higgs Hunters project, which will allow members of the general public to study images recorded at the Large Hadron Collider and to help search for previously ...
Italian physicist Fabiola Gianotti was chosen on Tuesday to lead the Cern particle physics research centre, the first woman to head up the globally renowned laboratory.
At the ATLAS experiment at CERN, physicists and engineers are testing their subdetector systems – using particles from outer space.
Recent results from the ATLAS experiment at CERN have given a clearer picture of the short but eventful life of a Higgs boson particle.
Last week, CERN was among several organizations to announce the Higgs boson machine-learning challengeExternal Links icon – your chance to develop machine-learning techniques to improve analysis of Higgs data.
