Large Hadron Collider Picks Up Hint Of The Tetraquark
2014-04-13 05:21:58

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has already played an essential role in the discovery of the so-called God particle, and now the world’s largest particle collider may have helped scientists discover a new form of matter known as the tetraquark. According to Maggie McKee of New Scientist, researchers conducting experiments at the LHC have confirmed the existence of a particle known as Z(4430). While physicists had previously...

Nobel Prize winning physicists, including a 2013 Nobel laureate who predicted the Higgs boson, and the discoverers of quarks and “color” join other distinguished speakers at "50 Years of Quarks & Color," an April 11-12 University of Maryland symposium on discoveries that sparked a physics revolution. Reporters are invited to the sold-out event. (PRWEB) April 07, 2014 Two Nobel Prize winning physicists, including a 2013 Nobel laureate who predicted the Higgs boson, and...

Higgs Boson Junior? Particle Physicist Theorizes There Are Particles Even Smaller
2014-03-22 06:37:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers from the University of Southern Denmark’s Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP ³ - Origins) now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered. According to particle physicist and associate professor Thomas Ryttov, those particles have yet to be detected. However,...

International Team Of LHC And Tevatron Scientists Join Forces
2014-03-19 17:36:39

Fermilab Scientists working on the world’s leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), past and current holders of the record for most powerful particle collider on Earth. Scientists from the four experiments involved—ATLAS, CDF, CMS and DZero—announced their joint findings on the mass of the top quark today at the Rencontres de Moriond...

HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe? http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20081007/38461LOGO Find out on Tuesday, March 11, at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., when William & Mary physics professor Josh Erlich will present "The Higgs Boson and Why It Matters" at 2 p.m. in the Reid Conference Center. On July 4, 2012, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider, the world's...

Large Hadron Collider Predecessor May Be Four Times Larger, Much More Powerful
2014-02-21 14:27:41

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists gathered in Geneva, Switzerland last week to consider the possibility of building a particle accelerator four times the size of the current largest accelerator in the world. The scientists met not far from CERN, which hosts the largest particle accelerator known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This accelerator has been made famous by its controversial discovery of the Higgs boson (God particle) a few years ago. While...

New Evidence Suggests Universal Collapse May Soon Be Upon Us
2013-12-12 15:09:39

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Physicists are now saying the universe may be closer to collapsing than previously believed. Scientists have long predicted the universe could one day collapse, compressing everything contained within, much like a building that can’t contain its own weight. Sooner or later, scientists believe the universe will cause every little particle in it to become extremely heavy, causing all material to squeeze into a small, super-hot and...

Hawking Speaks About God Particle Discovery
2013-11-13 05:17:51

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While many scientists hail the discovery of the Higgs boson as one of the preeminent finds of our time, one of the top thinkers of our era said that he was disappointed by the Nobel Prize-winning research – and admitted that he lost a $100 bet as a result of it. The man behind those comments is none other than theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and best-selling author Stephen Hawking, who according to Guardian Science...

Axion Search For Dark Matter
2013-11-07 08:36:41

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team at the University of Washington, led by Professor Leslie Rosenberg, is hunting for a theorized but never-before-seen elementary particle called an axion. The researchers will use the recently retooled, extremely sensitive detector that is currently in a testing and shakeout phase at UW's Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics Astrophysics. Physicists in the late 1970s first hypothesized the axion as a solution to a...

Physicist who worked on nobel winning hadron experiment to discuss the God particle at Maker House. (PRWEB) October 09, 2013 Professor Higgs and Professor Englert were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for the confirmation of the Higgs particle (aka the God Particle). But what exactly is that? What does it do? In a way it gives things their mass, but a more appropriate question might be why do things have mass at all? Physicists predicted that the previously undetected particle...
