Latest Elementary particle Stories
Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension?
Data from the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory may have revealed a new elementary particle, or potentially a new force of nature.
If the latest theory of Tom Weiler and Chui Man Ho is right, the Large Hadron Collider â€“ the worldâ€™s largest atom smasher that started regular operation last year â€“ could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time.
CERN scientists announced on Monday that they have staged their first speed-of-light particle collisions of the year over the weekend.
Researchers working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) said they expect to discover the elusive Higgs boson particle by the end of 2012.
In a recent webcast from NSF, physicists from the LHC discussed the search for the Higgs boson in 2011 and beyond.
Direct measurements allow detailed look at how quarks of different flavors contribute to spin.
Directors of the CERN research center said that new data on the origins of the universe is pouring in so quickly that physicists may extend the current opening phase of their "Big Bang" project to the end of 2012.
Researchers used Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation and the Large Hadron Collider to recreate a miniature version of the event at the origins of our Universe, and the first findings from their work were published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
At the Large Hadron Collider at CERN protons crash into each other at incredibly high energies in order to 'smash' the protons and to study the elementary particles of nature â€“ including quarks.
