Most of the laws of nature treat particles and antiparticles equally, but stars and planets are made of particles, or matter, and not antiparticles, or antimatter. That asymmetry, which favors matter to a very small degree, ...
Excitement is mounting at the world's largest proton smasher, where scientists are close to launching a superpowered hunt for particles that may change our understanding of the Universe.
With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) preparing to restart in a few months, data from its first run has already been bearing fruit.
Call it macro-micro physics: the study of the huge paired with the study of the very, very small.
Some serious groundwork has been laid. Some amazing instruments are turning on. Some incredible destinations are in sight. If you ask us, 2015 is going to be an awesome year in science.
So much for the warmup laps. Harvard physicists are looking with anticipation to the spring, when the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Switzerland, fires up after a two-year hiatus for repairs and upgrades. The last time ...
Unlike in mathematics, it is rare to have exact solutions to physics problems.
Protons are known to contain quarks and gluons. But are gluons behaving as expected?
Environmental challenges, climate change, water and food security and urban air pollution are all interlinked, yet each is studied separately. This is not a sustainable situation, for anybody anymore. To tackle this, professor ...
This year CERN's data centre broke its own record, when it collected more data than ever before.
