Latest Large Hadron Collider Stories
In September 2012, the Large Hadron Collider conducted a short run of collisions between protons and lead nuclei. The roughly two million events recorded were set to serve as a baseline for lead-lead collisions anticipated for next year. However, these events produced an unexpected result.
Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider are on the verge of squashing an important physics theory known as supersymmetry (SUSY).
In order to measure the shortest light pulses ever created, physicists plan to convert the CERN particle collider in Geneva, Switzerland into the planet's most accurate stop watch by 2018.
The University of Notre Dame has received a five-year, $6.1 million award from the National Science Foundation to support the continuation of the nationwide QuarkNet program, which uses particle physics experiments to inspire students and provide valuable research, training and mentorship opportunities for high school teachers.
Scientists working at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider are gaining a better understanding of the primordial universe through experimentation involving the use of heavy ions.
After years of theories and speculation, the Higgs boson particle discovery was announced on July 4, or was it? Several caveats swirled around the somewhat anti-climactic announcement, and almost a month later many scientists familiar with the CERN project are still reluctant to definitively say what they found was the so-called ‘God Particle’.
Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson
Now that the ‘God Particle’ has been discovered, is it time to pack up CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and move on to other projects?
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
