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
Fabiola Gianotti has some very big goals.
There has been lots of exciting science news so far this year. The most talked about has been the observation of gravitational
This fall, it has been a busy time collecting and analyzing data coming from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector located
"It seems quite clear to me that the academic journal is an anachronism," he wrote. "Digital technology enables us to communicate
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.
