Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Internet has grown to such an enormous size and ubiquitous presence that it may be quite difficult to define what it really is. For many, the Internet simply “is,” while the more tech savvy may refer to it as a series of interconnected computers and servers run by protocols. In its earliest form, it was described this way: “The WorldWideWeb (W3) is a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval...

Higgs Boson Finding Gets Strong Support From New Analyses
2013-03-14 11:52:04

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) says the latest analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator indicates that scientists did find the elusive Higgs boson particle last year. Last summer, scientists at CERN announced that they had potentially discovered the so-called ℠God particle´ but waited for further analysis to be performed before making it official. The new particle...

CERN Announces Large Hadron Collider Will Now Sleep Until 2015
2012-12-18 15:13:28

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced this morning that it will be giving its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) a bit of a rest until 2015. LHC completed its first three years of proton runs, and CERN said it will be giving the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator a break. The first three years of the LHC's proton-on-proton beam collision experiments have produced important finds,...

Black Hole Research Nets Stephen Hawking $3 Million Prize
2012-12-11 08:41:39

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the world´s most renowned physicists has likely got something bigger on his mind now than solving puzzles of the universe. Stephen Hawking, who has been shaking up the science world more than 25 years, has won a $3 million (£1.8m) Fundamental Physics Prize for his discovery in the 1970s that black holes emit radiation, for his work in quantum gravity and for his work in quantum aspects of the early universe. The...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com Researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are closing in on the so-called ℠God Particle´ that is the last major missing piece to the theoretical Standard Model of how the universe works at its most basic level. The God Particle, more properly know as the Higgs boson, is a hypothetical particle that exists throughout the known universe and when fit into the Standard Model, explains why fundamental particles like quarks...

Higgs Boson Sighting Announcement A Day Away
2011-12-12 13:19:37

Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are expected to present preliminary evidence of finding the elusive Higgs boson particle. The Higgs, or "God particle", has never been observed by experiments before and is a fundamental particle. It is one of the basic building blocks of the Universe and is also the last missing piece in the leading theory of particle physics.  The Higgs explains why other particles have mass. Scientists at the Large Hadron...

CERN Narrows Search For Higgs Boson
2011-11-25 06:10:31

The search for the elusive particle believed to help form the universe following the Big Bang nearly 14 billion years ago has been narrowed down to a specific location on the mass spectrum, and researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) should either find it -- or definitively prove that it doesn't exist -- sometime next year. On Thursday, CERN researcher James Gilles told Robert Evans of Reuters that the "high mass region" of the mass spectrum "has now been...

Word of the Day
  • The navel or umbilicus.
  • In Greek archaeology: A central boss, as on a shield, a bowl, etc.
  • A sacred stone in the temple of Apollo at Delphi, believed by the Greeks to mark the 'navel' or exact center-point of the earth.
'Omphalos' comes from the ancient Greek.
