Latest CERN Stories
Controlling huge electromagnetic forces that have the potential to destroy the next generation of particle accelerators is the subject of a new paper by a University of Manchester physicist.
After a widely publicized helium leak shut down the Large Hadron Collider last year, engineers began installing an early warning system they hope will prevent any similar problems.
The Large Hadron Collider will not become a white elephant, despite having operated just one week in the year since its debut, scientists in Switzerland said. The world's most powerful atom smasher began operation a year ago this month near Geneva amid great expectations it would recreate the conditions of the universe at its earliest infancy.
Switzerland's troubled Large Hadron Collider is expected to restart in November at half-speed and reach full capacity in 2011, scientists said. The world's most powerful atom-smasher initially began operating Sept.
The mysteries of the universe will remain unknown for a few months longer after the CERN announcement that the giant particle collider will restart in November.
Today in Brussels, CERN1 and the European Commission are to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which aims to enhance the long-standing partnership between the two organizations.
The world's largest particle accelerator, featured in Angels & Demons making antimatter, is riddled with electrical problems, European officials concede. As a result, it may be years before the $9 billion Large Hadron Collider, located in suburban Geneva, Switzerland, produces groundbreaking science, officials acknowledge. This science is includes identifying the dark matter that astronomers say makes up 25 percent of the cosmos and exploring the existence of dimensions beyond the three...
The restart of the Large Hadron Collider has been pushed back from October to November, a CERN spokesman said on Thursday.
The world's biggest atom smasher will be put to the test once more in October after scientists have conducted tests and set up additional safety precautions to stop any further mistakes that halted the $10 billion machine after its startup in 2008, the operator announced on Saturday.
Declaring that true faith has no quarrel with science, a senior Vatican delegation visited the CERN nuclear physics lab on the Swiss-French border this week.
