Latest CERN Stories
Gordon, the unique supercomputer launched last year by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, recently completed its most data-intensive task so far: rapidly processing raw data from almost one billion particle collisions as part of a project to help define the future research agenda for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Engineers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Cern, Switzerland have begun the process of upgrading. The $105-million upgrade should double the potential energy of what is already the world's most powerful particle accelerator.
Scientists from CERN say the latest analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator support the claim that scientists did in fact find the elusive Higgs boson particle last year.
Physicists sorting out the evidence from last summer's LHC experiments are calculating new data that may show the universe is not as infinite as previously believed.
The Large Hadron Collider was officially shut down early Thursday morning, beginning a two-year period of repair and upgrades.
For the last four years Congress and the White House have been unable to pass a federal budget, settling each time for continuing resolutions. However, such stopgaps keep funding levels flat, or even, accounting for inflation, in decline.
CERN announced this week it will be shutting down the LHC after three successful years of operation, giving the particle smasher a break until 2015.
One of the world’s most renowned physicists has likely got something bigger on his mind now than solving puzzles of the universe.
In order to measure the shortest light pulses ever created, physicists plan to convert the CERN particle collider in Geneva, Switzerland into the planet's most accurate stop watch by 2018.
Physicists around the world are celebrating the one year anniversary of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS).
