Latest Collider Stories
Officials at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have created the highest energy levels yet achieved in a particle accelerator.
A worldwide team of researchers, including 10 from Texas A&M University, have for the first time created a particle that is believed to have been in existence immediately after the creation of the universe â€“ the so-called "Big Bang" â€“ and it could lead to new questions and answers about some of the basic laws of physics because in essence, it creates a new form of matter.
Scientists are preparing for a new crusade in the exploration of the secrets of the universe, when in the days ahead, they will restart the worldâ€™s most powerful atom-smasher.
Scientists at the US Department of Energyâ€™s Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York report they have created the hottest temperature in the lab -- 4 trillion degrees Celsius -- which is thought to be consistent with actual temperatures that existed when the universe was born.
Three Iowa State University physicists who took winter trips to the Large Hadron Collider for meetings and experimental work are starting to see real data from the planet's biggest science experiment.
CERN's Large Hadron Collider set a new record this week in its quest to recreate Big Bang conditions and allow scientists to gain a better understanding of the nature of matter.
The largest atom smasher in the world has caught its first high-energy collision of protons, CERN announced on Wednesday.
The "Big Bang" test at CERN in Switzerland achieved a world record Monday when beams were increased to the highest energy ever attained in a particle collider.
Scientists working on the world's biggest accelerator have restarted an experiment to recreate "Big Bang" conditions in an effort to better understand the origins of the universe.
The LArge Hadron Collider, which was shut down after its inauguration in September 2008 amid technical faults, restarted on Friday, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said.
