Breaking data records bit by bit

This year CERN's data centre broke its own record, when it collected more data than ever before.

What's physics after the Higgs boson?

Aalto University doctoral student Juska Pekkanen is part of a group working with the highest collision energies ever achieved.

A very special run for the LHCb experiment

For the first time, the LHCb experiment at CERN has collected data simultaneously in collider and in fixed-target modes. With this, the LHCb special run is even more special.

LHC achieves record luminosity

It's the end of the road for the protons this year after a magnificent performance from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). On Friday, the final beams of the 2017 proton run circulated in the LHC. The run ended, as it does every ...

Open-source software for data from high-energy physics

Most of the universe is dark, with dark matter and dark energy comprising more than 95 percent of its mass-energy. Yet we know little about dark matter and energy. To find answers, scientists run huge high-energy physics ...

LHC reaches 2017 targets ahead of schedule

Today, CERN Control Centre operators announced good news, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has successfully met its production target for 2017, delivering more than 45 inverse femtobarns to the experiments.

The most exotic fluid has an unexpectedly low viscosity

Collisions of lead nuclei in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) take place at such great energies that quarks that are normally confined inside nucleons are released and, together with the gluons that hold them together, form ...
