Gordon, the unique supercomputer launched last year by the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, recently completed its most data-intensive task so far: rapidly processing raw data from almost one billion particle collisions as part of a project to help define the future research agenda for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

LHC Upgrade Could Create A New Physics

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.

Einstein's 134th Birthday

Albert Einstein, almost unanimously considered the greatest physicist since Sir Isaac Newton, would have turned 134 today. And his legacy has never been as vibrant as it is right now in the realm of modern physics.

Higgs Boson Finding Gets Strong Support From New Analyses

Scientists from CERN say the latest analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator support the claim that scientists did in fact find the elusive Higgs boson particle last year.

Is The Universe Infinite? Not Likely, Say Physicists
2013-02-19 14:23:24

Physicists sorting out the evidence from last summer's LHC experiments are calculating new data that may show the universe is not as infinite as previously believed.

Supersymmetry Physics Theory Fails Important Test
2012-11-12 16:48:13

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider are on the verge of squashing an important physics theory known as supersymmetry (SUSY).

Has The Higgs Boson Really Been Found?
2012-08-01 13:56:54

After years of theories and speculation, the Higgs boson particle discovery was announced on July 4, or was it? Several caveats swirled around the somewhat anti-climactic announcement, and almost a month later many scientists familiar with the CERN project are still reluctant to definitively say what they found was the so-called ‘God Particle’.
