New findings from a CERN study may be able to fill one of the biggest gaps in the Standard Model of physics -- how the universe broke the rules of symmetry and why we exist.
Stone marten gnawed through a transformer wire of CERN's Large Hadron Collider, resulting in a major failure of the world's biggest and most capable particle collider, and instantly killing the weasel-like animal.
From a gripping thriller about cracking the genetic code to a globe-trotter about animal research, the short list of a respected U.K.-based science book award, the Royal Society Winton Prize, has been announced.
After an intermittent short-circuit put a dent in scientists' plans, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) finally began its powerful restart after a 2-year shutdown, officials said.
After being shut down for two years, a short-circuit has stalled the much-anticipated restart of CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the particle smashing machine that famously discovered the Higgs boson, officials announced Wednesday.
Scientists have re-discovered the famous Higgs boson, the "God particle" believed to be responsible for all the mass in the Universe, using superconductors, researchers announced Thursday.
CERN just discovered two new particles that scientists thought were the stuff of myth. But in a new breakthrough study, they can now prove that their predictions were correct.
The Large Hadron Collider will malfunction, bringing about an end to the world as we know it, in an upcoming movie possibly directed by Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer.
The Large Hadron Collider is stirring, prepping for its second three-year experiment after 16 months of revamping and upgrades. The Improved "atom smasher" will function at double its former energy level, allowing scientists to approach the next stage in studies of energy and mysterious phenomena like dark matter.
Physicists at Syracuse University have helped confirm the existence of "exotic hadrons" - a type of matter that cannot be classified within the traditional quark model.
In an effort to better explore dark matter, Cern engineers have begun updates on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) located underground beneath the border of France and Switzerland.
