particle physics

The idea that science is going to create or unleash a Frankenstein that may kill all of us has been around for a couple of centuries, but lately this particular type of scare has grown.
While BURST is not the first computer code to simulate conditions during the first few minutes of cosmological evolution, it can achieve better precision by a few orders of magnitude compared to its predecessors.
As a particle physicist working with the CMS collaboration taking data in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), now is an incredibly
The instrumentation that allowed this observation is a technical marvel and a whole new way of examining the universe has
This fall, it has been a busy time collecting and analyzing data coming from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector located
But other experts argue it may be time to rethink how scientists get credited for their work -- and even how new research
You might have heard that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is back online. In the past few weeks, it started circulating beams and then they were able to ramp up the energy per beam to 6.5 trillion electron volts which is a new record, up from the previous 4 trillion electron volts.
Beginning in just a few days, physicists working at the CERN laboratory in Switzerland will start commissioning the largest and most powerful particle accelerator ever built -- the Large Hadron Collider or LHC.
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.
Coles said the key to the new research was to use mathematics to translate the language of wave and particle behavior into

See all Talk Nerdy to Me posts. "The question is a little hard to answer as you have put it, since fundamental particles
What’s the smallest thing in the universe? It's complicated. After all, fundamental particles are what physicists call the most basic building blocks of matter, and they are so minuscule that no current technology, nor technology we can even imagine, can detect their size. But if the universe's smallest particles are that small, how do scientists know so much about them -- or do they? To find the answers, HuffPost Science's Jacqueline Howard visits the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
“We know that the dark matter explanation is a long shot, but the pay-off would be huge if we're right,” Bulbul said in an
