In Part I, Vanderbilt’s Professor Tom Weiler laid out for us his theory of how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) might produce time traveling particles. Here, in Part II, we find out what he expects for the future of the LHC and his theory, and what the theory’s realization could mean for mankind.

Even though dark matter is believed to make up 85 percent of the universe’s mass, no one has managed to detect the elusive material, but a new fundamental particle proposed by scientists at the University of Southampton could finally change that.

A new study published in Physical Review Letters might explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang, which is something that scientists have been striving to understand.

Physicists Closer To Understanding Balance Of Matter, Antimatter
2014-10-29 03:15:14

Physicists in the College of Arts and Sciences have made important discoveries regarding Bs meson particles—something that may explain why the universe contains more matter than antimatter.

Thanks to one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on Earth, physicists have for the first time confirmed the existence of low-energy neutrinos created by the “keystone” proton-proton fusion process taking place in the core of the sun.

Higgs Boson Dark Energy
2013-08-12 08:44:59

A new theory suggests perhaps dark energy may be created by interactions of exotic particles like the Higgs Boson.

CERN Finds Matter-Antimatter Asymmetry

Scientists at CERN have submitted a paper to be published in the journal Physical Review Letters about the first observation of matter-antimatter asymmetry.

Dark Energy Theory Challenged
2013-01-10 09:15:38

A popular theory that emphasizes dark energy as a contributor to the acceleration of the universe’s expansion does not fit newly obtained data with regards to one fundamental constant – the proton to electron mass ration – claims a University of Arizona astronomy professor.
