Large Hadron Collider Set To Investigate Big Bang With More Precision
2011-11-02 10:08:31

Researchers at Switzerland´s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are setting aside four weeks to investigate the conditions of the early universe in more detail than ever before and taking a break from searching for the Higgs boson, David Shiga from New Scientist is reporting. The Higgs boson experiment has produced roughly 6 inverse femtobarns of collision data, about three times the total used in the last major analysis searching for the elusive particle, thought to endow other particles...

Image 1 - Higgs Boson App Released For Android Devices

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider -- located on the French-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland -- have unveiled a new free app for Google Android phones and tablet computers that lets users see events unfolding live inside the particle accelerator in a 3D view. The app, called LHSEE, has already been downloaded more than 10,000 times. It was created by scientists, led by Dr Alan Barr, at Oxford University and has full approval of CERN. While the app doesn´t capture everything,...

Image 1 - Could Higgs Boson Explain The Universe's Size?

  The Universe wouldn´t be the same without the Higgs boson. This legendary particle plays a role in cosmology and reveals the possible existence of another closely related particle. The race to identify the Higgs boson is on at CERN. This Holy Grail of particle physics would help explain why the majority of elementary particles possess mass. The mysterious particle would also help us understand the evolution of the Universe from the moment of its birth, according to a group...

Higgs May Be Detected As Early As Christmas

  Researchers at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) said that the hunt for the Higgs particle is well ahead of schedule, according to BBC News. They said earlier this year they would either discover the Higgs or confirm is does not exist by the end of 2012. The Higgs Boson is the particle that in the physics "Standard Model" allows other particles to have mass. The discovery or elimination of the particle is one of the LHC's major objectives, and it may come as early as...

  Physicists are hinting that the Higgs-Boson particle, sometimes referred to as the “God particle”, may be nonexistent. According to the AFP news agency, physicists announced at a European conference that a big atom-smasher experiment had shown tantalizing hints of the Higgs-Boson, as the search to identify the particle enters the final stretch with results expected late next year. Physicist Howard Gordon, deputy US ATLAS operations program manager told AFP,...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) team is looking to the public to help it hunt for the Higgs boson particle. "Volunteers can now actively help physicists in the search for new fundamental particles that will provide insights into the origin of our Universe, by contributing spare computing power from their personal computers and laptops," read a statement from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research which runs the LHC. The Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid is a $141...

The scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have been unsuccessful in proving the existence of the so-called "God particle" so far, but they are getting close, according to various media reports on Monday. According to AFP reporter Marlowe Hood, experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at the CERN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, have yet to discover the Higgs boson, a sub-atomic particle believed to have played an important role in the creation...

Scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) may have gotten their first look at the so-called "God particle" -- the fabled massive elementary particle known as the Higgs boson -- according to BBC News reports published Friday. According to BBC Science Correspondent Ian Sample, officials at the Geneva-based particle physics laboratory announced the possible discovery during the 2011 Europhysics Conference on High-Energy Physics...

Data that hinted at the possible discovery of a new sub-atomic particle has been rejected after cross-checks failed to find support for the initial observation, according to a recent BBC News report. Researchers working on the CDF experiment at the US Tevatron "atom smasher" announced in May that they had detected exciting hints of a possible unanticipated particle. But in a separate experiment --called DZero -- cross-checks of the data lacked any good evidence of the findings. The DZero...

A senior physicist said on Monday that the CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) set a new record in its quest to pinpoint the elusive particle known as the Higgs Boson. "Last night, a symbolic frontier was crossed," said Michel Spiro, president of the board of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), according to the AFP news agency. The rate of sub-atomic collisions at the world's biggest particle collider has multiplied 10-fold in the last month. The 16.9-mile tunnel is...
