For our research at the Large Hadron Collider with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, 2014 was a year of hard work. The LHC has been in a planned shutdown since 2013 and the plan is to start giving proton-proton collisions again in mid-2015.
This summer may pack plenty of silver-screen explosions, but how many of them tell you what you're made of?
There's a reason Albert Einstein always looked like he'd stuck his finger in a light socket: Physicists spend their days doing some of the most mind-blowing research in science. Here are 10 physics findings that will cramp your brain and make your hair stand on end.
Experts may have all the answers, but let's face it: kids have all the best questions. Today, young science enthusiast Oliver Chapman breaks down the Higgs Boson and why, exactly, it's dubbed the "God particle."
Why is that so incredible? "The background field in interaction with all the other stuff which goes through it, is responsible
Last month, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in physics to Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter
There are many who believe that a world filled with this degree of peace, love and harmony (our true nature) will exist only following an apocalyptic battle that will destroy humanity in the physical realm. But I'm not among them.
If God exists, the deity must be smiling. For behind the high fives and hoopla over the Higgs boson, there's a growing doubt that we are anywhere near to understanding the nature of reality. These doubts arise from two major sources.
The award of the Nobel Prize in physics generally creates a mental blur for most people, since no one can comprehend the current state of physics without training in advanced mathematics. This year was somewhat different, thanks to a nickname.
No one can predict what practical applications can come out of the basic scientific research being done today, but history shows that without basic science we can expect little human progress.
