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.
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.
Particle physics saves lives, connects continents through new channels of communication, helps us understand the world around us and inspires tomorrowâ€™s leaders.
An orbiting satellite has detected an anomalous energy signal that European astronomers say could be a sign of dark matter.
UK scientists have successfully demonstrated energy recovery on the ALICE advanced particle accelerator design, potentially paving the way for new accelerators using a fraction of the energy required under conventional methods.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Friday a further delay to the resumption of the vast particle collider designed to stimulate the â€œBig Bangâ€.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) reported on Monday that it will cost about 25 million francs, or $21 million, in order to make critical repairs on the worldâ€™s largest atom smasher.
Here's what didn't happen on Sept. 10th: The world did not end. Switching on the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, did not trigger the creation of a microscopic black hole.
The massive particle collider built to simulate the conditions of the "Big Bang" will not restart until spring 2009 after a technical glitch forced its shutdown, according to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN.
