The particles were created during an experiment conducted inside the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), an atom smasher
"BaBar didn't prove that Belle's measurements and data interpretations were wrong," Skwarnicki said. "They just felt that

Though the new results don't rule out other physics theories to explain the existence of dark matter and energy, they do
Francois Englert and Peter W. Higgs won the 2013 Nobel Prize For Physics on Tuesday for their research into the Higgs boson particle, nicknamed the "God particle."

What did we know about the size and contents of our universe a hundred years ago? Very little. Even the proton, the nucleus of the simplest atom (hydrogen), was only discovered by Rutherford in 1917-1919.
"There is a hint that the universe did not evolve exactly the way we expected," Dr. Eric Linder, a theoretical physicist
The data gathered is compared to computer models of collisions created according to current understanding of physics to test

Asking the brain to understand where reality comes from is like asking a robot to dismantle itself to find out what it's made of -- you won't have a machine after the dismantling is done, and therefore no answer.
Scientists have caught many neutrinos in the act of disappearing. But catching neutrinos as they appear has been far more
"According to our theories, the same amount of matter and antimatter was produced during the Big Bang," Harvard physicist
The Amherst team then applied a magnetic field to a group of subatomic particles — neutrons in this case — and looked closely
Believe it or not, the particle-field debate affects heavy discussions on theology, spirituality and the interaction of religion and science.

If, on the other hand, the Higgs turns out not to exist, we'll have more mixed feelings. It's defeat in a sense—all the time
