Latest European Organization for Nuclear Research Stories
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Thursday that the forced shutdown of its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) last month was caused by a faulty electrical connection between two of the acceleratorâ€™s magnets.
The worldâ€™s largest physics experiment will be delayed for two months after the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experienced a meltdown due to a defective connection between two magnets, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (Cern) laboratory acknowledged.
By JUDY SIEGEL It probably won't turn out to be quite as exciting as a black hole swallowing up planet earth, but the world's largest ever experiment, which kicks off on Wednesday, is still likely to take human knowledge a thrilling leap forward.
The world's largest experiment in physics, the Hadron Particle Collider, began running Wednesday in a 17 mile tunnel under the French-Swiss border. The collider produces so much information that even the enormous computing authority of the European Organization for Nuclear Research cannot process it all.
Champagne corks popped in labs across the world as scientists celebrated the first successful run of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Thursday that the world's most powerful particle accelerator, aimed at unlocking secrets of the universe, is expected to launch on September 10.
Squarks, photinos, selectrons, neutralinos. These are just a few types of supersymmetric particles, a special brand of particle that may be created when the world's most powerful atom smasher goes online this spring.
Installation of the world's largest particle physics collider began Monday with the lowering of a massive, superconducting magnet into the circular tunnel housing the new research facility that will draw scientists from all over the world, a spokeswoman said.
- Withering but not falling off, as a blossom that persists on a twig after flowering.
