Latest Collider Stories
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. However, technology like this could one day be simply sitting on a tabletop.
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.
After a short winter break, physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the French-Swiss border have set a new world record by successfully smashing two 4 teraelectronvolt (TeV) proton beams together producing a total of 8 TeVs.
CERN physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland are to increase the machine’s energy output to embark on a last-ditch journey to find the elusive Higgs boson, a theoretical “God particle” that could change physics as we know it.
Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have set a new record for the calculation of scattering amplitudes.
Physicists from around the world kicked off a major initiative on Wednesday to upgrade the Large Hadron Collider at CERN into a vastly more powerful space research machine by 2020.
