Latest CERN Stories
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has taken new steps by smashing together lead ions instead of protons to create a "mini-Big Bang."
Researchers working at the worldâ€™s highest-energy particle accelerator on the Franco-Swiss border are nearly set to create the Big Bang on a miniature scale.
Scientists investigating the origins of the universe are hoping the vast underground Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, will lead to new discoveries that could completely change existing views of how the cosmos works.
Scientists working at the worldâ€™s largest atom smasher said Tuesday the they believe they have discovered a new phenomenon while trying to unravel the universeâ€™s deepest secrets.
Europe's particle research center CERN said Friday that budget cuts are forcing the center to shut down its accelerators for a year in 2012, but its flagship "Big Bang" machine will remain unaffected.
A massive particle detector that will search the reaches of outer space for antimatter and other clues about the origins of the universe began the initial steps towards its voyage to the International Space Station on Wednesday.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) staff warned Wednesday that major budget cuts at the world's biggest atom smasher over the next five years are set to slow down its quest to unlock the deepest secrets of the universe.
The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, an experiment that will search for antimatter and dark matter in space, leaves CERN next Tuesday on the next leg of its journey to the International Space Station.
A group of University of Toronto high-energy physicists, along with their 3,000 ATLAS colleagues, announced they have broken world records in the search for new particles as the first findings from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) were presented July 26 in Paris, France.
First results from the LHC at CERN* are being revealed at ICHEP, the world's largest international conference on particle physics, which has attracted more than 1000 participants to its venue in Paris.
