redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, will present preliminary findings from its search for the Higgs Boson, the so-called ℠God particle´, on July 4 as an international physics conference gets underway, the Geneva-based organization said on Thursday. The announcement will include the latest results from ATLAS and CMS, two major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that are searching for the...

Record Setting 7.2 Trillion Degrees Fahrenheit In New York

[ Watch the Video ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com As record-setting heat and wildfires continue to consume Colorado, one team of scientists has created a temperature so hot the Sun would melt. Scientists working with a giant atom smasher at New York's Brookhaven National Laboratory have created the hottest temperature ever seen on Earth, at 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit. The excruciatingly hot temperature has been verified by the Guinness Book of Records, and confirmed as...

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...

The Director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) says that he is confident that his group will have proven the existence of the Higgs Boson before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is turned off for upgrades at year's end. Speaking at the Hay Festival on Saturday, Dr. Rolf-Dieter Heuer said that the LHC will be closed down at the end of 2012 and will remain non-operational for upwards of two years, during which time it will receive upgrades to enhance its power and allow...

CERN Particle Accelerator Reveals Previously Unknown Particle
2012-04-29 04:48:19

It has not discovered the Higgs Boson -- not yet, anyway -- but the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator has revealed a never-before-discovered particle comprised of three quarks. The discovery, which was announced Friday by Symmetry Magazine, was made by University of Zurich physicists and was based on data gathered in the CMS detector at the Geneva, Switzerland-based facility, which is overseen by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). According to Symmetry...

CERN, Large Hadron Collider Physicists Set New Record
2012-04-06 09:17:44

After a short winter break, physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the French-Swiss border have set a new world record by successfully smashing two 4 teraelectronvolt (TeV) proton beams together producing a total of 8 TeVs, as they continue to search for the elusive Higgs boson “God particle.” Following the record-breaking smashup yesterday (April 5 at 12:38 a.m.), the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) scientists declared ℠stable...

The Ever-expanding Hunt For The Elusive Higgs
2012-03-07 14:11:54

Scientists working at the US Tevatron particle collider near Batavia, Illinois on Wednesday said they have found the strongest evidence yet for the existence of the elusive “God particle.” They said their experiments mirror those from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Europe that have narrowed the range where the Higgs boson particle could be hiding. The Higgs Boson is the missing link in the standard model of physics and is believed to be what gives objects mass, though...
