The short circuit that had delayed the restart of the Large Hadron Collider has been fixed and the world’s largest atom smasher could begin operations as early as this weekend, officials at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) announced on Tuesday.

A new survey by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory studied 72 galactic cluster collisions from all different angles and times, revealing that the 85 percent of the universe’s total matter is way weirder than we could ever imagine.

Astronomers have found that dark matter does not slow down when colliding with itself, meaning it interacts with itself less than previously thought, narrowing down what this crazy substance might be.

Scientists at CERN have been gearing the Large Hadron Collider up for its first active run in two years, but starting up the massive particle physics system will be put on hold for a bit after a short circuit was detected in a powerful electromagnet.

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...

WIMP -- In astronomy, WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles, figure into one explanation of the dark matter problem. The particles are called "weakly interacting" because they seem not to have much interaction with normal matter (electrons, protons, and neutrons) other than gravitational attraction (thus "massive"). Assuming that there are Weakly Interacting Massive Particles, these particles would then fall out of equilibrium with the universe when they are non-relativistic....

Strange Matter -- Strange matter (also known as quark matter) is an ultra-dense phase of matter that is theorized to form inside particularly massive neutron stars (which are then known as "strange stars" or "quark stars"). It's theorized that when neutronium is put under sufficient pressure due to the gravitation of a large neutron star, the individual neutrons break down and their constituent quarks form strange matter. Strange matter is composed of strange quarks bound to each...

Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
