The Large Hadron Collider's machine systems are now recovering from a recent general power cut. The organization that runs the LHC, CERN, said it had taken until Monday morning for the machine to fully recover. According to a spokesperson, the electrical cut on Friday may have been caused by storms. The collider is in a technical stop that is allowing technicians access to its 16-mile long tunnel. A spokesperson said a technical stop had already been scheduled for this week. James...

Engineers have successfully injected beams of particles into two sections of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), marking the first time particle beams have been inside the LHC since it was shut down in September 2008, BBC News reported. Scientists working on the giant particle accelerator called it "a milestone" and plan to circulate a beam around the 16 mile-long tunnel in November. Last year, a magnet problem called a "quench" caused the LHC to leak a ton of liquid helium, forcing it to shut...

The Large Hadron Collider will not become a white elephant, despite having operated just one week in the year since its debut, scientists in Switzerland said. The world's most powerful atom smasher began operation a year ago this month near Geneva amid great expectations it would recreate the conditions of the universe at its earliest infancy. A week later, the more than $8 billion collider broke down. Scientists have spent the last year replacing super magnets and inspecting parts designed...

By Thomas, William Abstract. This paper explores the relationship between operations research (OR) as practised during the Second World War and the claims of many of its proponents that it constituted an application of scientific method. It begins with an examination of the pre-war work of two of the most notable leaders in wartime OR, the British experimental physicist Patrick Blackett and the American theoretical physicist Philip Morse. Despite differences in their scientific work, each...

Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...
