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...

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...

South Africa's First Hardware Contribution Delivered To ATLAS Detector At CERN
2013-09-05 12:50:55

University of the Witwatersrand An important milestone for physics, engineering and manufacturing for SA Physicists from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg have reached an important milestone and have made the first South African contribution of a "piece of hardware" to the ATLAS Experiment on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization of Nuclear Research (CERN). Physics PhD student Robert Reed designed a High Voltage board (HV board) that was...

InventHelp®, America’s Leading Inventor Service Company, attempts to submit an invention, Duel Co & Smoke Detector, to companies for review. Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013 "I thought that there had to be a better way to protect a building's occupants from smoke and carbon monoxide, which is what led me to invent this system," said an inventor from North Chicago, Ill. He developed the DUEL CO & SMOKE DETECTOR to automatically detect smoke and carbon...

New Magnet Set To Help LHC Reach New Heights
2013-07-15 04:55:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have successfully tested a powerful new magnet that will be playing a big role in developing a new beam for CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Researchers collaborated to build a powerful superconducting quadrupole magnet to increase LHC luminosity by an order of magnitude. This new system will help the LHC produce 10 times more high-energy collisions than it was originally designed for. The HQ02a is the latest in the...

CERN Finds Matter-Antimatter Asymmetry
2013-04-24 14:40:18

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at CERN have submitted a paper to be published in the journal Physical Review Letters about the first observation of matter-antimatter asymmetry. The team said they made the observation while looking at the decay rate of particles known as B0s mesons. They now say that their findings indicate that antimatter decays at a faster rate than antimatter. Matter and antimatter are thought to have existed in equal amounts at the...

LHC Upgrade Could Create A New Physics
2013-04-03 11:39:00

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Engineers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Cern, Switzerland have begun the process of upgrading. The $105-million upgrade should double the potential energy of what is already the world's most powerful particle accelerator. BBC News reports that the scientists believe the upgrade will enable them to discover more new particles like the Higgs boson discovery last year that will lead to a more complete theory of how the Universe...


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
