Large Hadron Collider Predecessor May Be Four Times Larger, Much More Powerful
2014-02-21 14:27:41

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists gathered in Geneva, Switzerland last week to consider the possibility of building a particle accelerator four times the size of the current largest accelerator in the world. The scientists met not far from CERN, which hosts the largest particle accelerator known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This accelerator has been made famous by its controversial discovery of the Higgs boson (God particle) a few years ago. While...

Nobel Prize Higgs Boson Scientists
2013-10-08 11:01:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Two scientists behind the theoretical model describing the Higgs boson were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2013, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Tuesday. Many in the scientific community saw the award as recognition of the actual discovery of the so-called ‘God particle’ last year at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. The prize is more often awarded to those on the theoretical...

2013-08-29 19:03:15

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online The origins of the universe still remain very much of mystery, but a lucky few may get to take part in a special tweetup in Geneva next month at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, and even get a behind-the-scenes preview in advance of CERN’s Open Days on Saturday September 28 and Sunday September 29. Between now and Sunday, September 8, CERN will select participants from a handful of @CERN Twitter followers, who...

New Magnet Set To Help LHC Reach New Heights
2013-07-15 04:55:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have successfully tested a powerful new magnet that will be playing a big role in developing a new beam for CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Researchers collaborated to build a powerful superconducting quadrupole magnet to increase LHC luminosity by an order of magnitude. This new system will help the LHC produce 10 times more high-energy collisions than it was originally designed for. The HQ02a is the latest in the...

CERN Scientists Continue The Hunt For World's First Web Page
2013-06-12 11:05:01

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known by its French acronym CERN, are working hard to uncover the world´s first Web page, but are struggling due to the nature of how data is shared. Tim Berners-Lee invented the Web in 1990 while working on an unsanctioned project at CERN. He used a NeXT computer that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs designed during the 1980s. Dan Noyes, who oversees CERN's website,...

Cern Recreates First Ever Webpage
2013-05-01 10:17:28

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Internet has grown to such an enormous size and ubiquitous presence that it may be quite difficult to define what it really is. For many, the Internet simply “is,” while the more tech savvy may refer to it as a series of interconnected computers and servers run by protocols. In its earliest form, it was described this way: “The WorldWideWeb (W3) is a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval...
