Brendan M. Lynch, University of Kansas Astrophysicists believe that about 80 percent of the substance of our universe is made up of mysterious “dark matter” that can’t be perceived by human senses or scientific instruments. “Dark matter has not yet been detected in a lab. We infer about it from astronomical observations,” said Mikhail Medvedev, professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Kansas, who has just published breakthrough research on dark matter that...

Researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory simulated the birth of the universe using Livermore's 5-petaflop Vulcan high performance computer. The research appears in the Aug. 18 edition of Physical Review Letters. Livermore, California (PRWEB) August 25, 2014 Using a calculation originally proposed seven years ago to be performed on a petaflop computer, Lawrence Livermore researchers computed conditions that simulate the birth of the universe. When the universe was...

New Evidence Surfaces In Favor Of Higgs Boson Discovery
2014-06-24 14:23:51

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Nearly two years ago the physics community was abuzz with news that researchers at the LHC had found evidence of the Higgs Boson, the long sought particle that could finally explain where all particles in the Universe get their mass. However, this initial finding was only the beginning. The data only revealed that the team had found a Higgs-like particle, one that exhibited the expected behavior predicted by theorists. But...

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...

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,...

Quarks In The Mirror
2014-02-06 12:22:26

DOE/Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter. Since the discovery of quarks, the building blocks of protons and neutrons, physicists have been exploiting those symmetries to study quarks' intrinsic properties and to uncover what those properties can reveal about the physical laws that govern them. A recent...
