Latest Collider Stories
In Part I, Vanderbilt’s Professor Tom Weiler laid out for us his theory of how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) might produce time traveling particles. Here, in Part II, we find out what he expects for the future of the LHC and his theory, and what the theory’s realization could mean for mankind.
After nearly three decades worth of waiting, researchers working at the world’s biggest particle collider confirmed on Wednesday that they had observed an extremely rare event that provides new evidence to support the so-called Standard Model of physics.
The Large Hadron Collider is in the bullpen, warming up and getting ready to get back into the game, as the massive particle accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland has smashed particles together for the first time since restarting last month.
The famous Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is expected to restart proton collisions in mid-June, after being fired up again in early April following a two year break for upgrades.
During an experimental run at the US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) set a new record for producing polarized proton collisions at 200-giga-electron-volt collision energy.
After a few minor setbacks, researchers at CERN in Switzerland were able to bring the Large Hardon Collider (LHC) back online Monday.
The short circuit that had delayed the restart of the Large Hadron Collider has been fixed and the world’s largest atom smasher could begin operations as early as this weekend, officials at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) announced on Tuesday.
Scientists at CERN have been gearing the Large Hadron Collider up for its first active run in two years, but starting up the massive particle physics system will be put on hold for a bit after a short circuit was detected in a powerful electromagnet.
Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland have found through their experiments that theories surrounding particle physics have held up well so far – and that’s the problem.
Researchers from the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in California have set a new world record by exciting subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded from a compact accelerator.
