Scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) played down claims of a significant discovery, after a leaked memo hinted that the elusive "God particle" may have been found. Experts say speculation of the dramatic finding for the Higgs boson particle is premature. The leak surfaced online and then was spread rapidly among the scientific community. A spokesman for CERN -- the European Organization for Nuclear Research -- confirmed that the note was authentic. But he told BBC News that the...

Physicists study rare particles to learn why the universe has more matter than antimatter Using data from experiments performed in 2010 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, scientists are studying rare particle decays that could explain why the universe has more matter than antimatter. Led by Sheldon Stone, a physicist at Syracuse University, a group of scientists recently published their first observations of two different...

European scientists said on Monday that the creation and capture of anti-hydrogen atoms has put them on track to solving one of the greatest cosmic mysteries. Anti-matter is of intense interest outside the global scientific community because it has often been thought of as a potential source of boundless and almost cost-free energy. The announcement from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) came just three weeks after another of the three teams at the particle research...

First results from the LHC at CERN* are being revealed at ICHEP, the world's largest international conference on particle physics, which has attracted more than 1000 participants to its venue in Paris. The spokespersons of the four major experiments at the LHC "“ ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb "“ are today presenting measurements from the first three months of successful LHC operation at 3.5 TeV per beam, an energy three and a half times higher than previously achieved at a particle...

Scientists have simulated what is thought to be the sounds made by sub-atomic particles when they are produced at the Large Hadron Collider. Their goal is to develop a way for physicists at CERN to "listen to the data" and pick out the Higgs particle if and when they finally detect it. Lily Asquith modeled data from the giant Atlas experiment at the LHC. She worked with sound engineers to convert data taken during collisions at the LHC. "If the energy is close to you, you will hear a low...
