Higgs Boson Junior? Particle Physicist Theorizes There Are Particles Even Smaller
2014-03-22 06:37:21

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers from the University of Southern Denmark’s Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP ³ - Origins) now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered. According to particle physicist and associate professor Thomas Ryttov, those particles have yet to be detected. However,...

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...

Dark Matter Results From LUX Confirmed After Recalibration - WIMPs Still Not Detected
2014-02-21 08:47:17

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Dark matter research, like all experiments involving particle and astrophysical detections, relies on sorting out the desired events (the source events) from the noise (the background events). Since the interactions occur at a quantum level, the statistical process of sorting through the data is laborious, but also, more importantly, relies on your ability to calibrate and understand the instrument. Back in October the Large...

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...
