Scientists at Cern's Large Hadron Collider have seen something that may force us to abandon everything we thought we knew about the world on the level of particles.
The SKA global project could be a driver that contributes to South Africa' economic growth.
It's not enough to do groundbreaking research if the results are kept from the public. So CERN is making its results available to everyone via open access, showing how science should be done.
One of the great mysteries of the universe is why there is so much more matter than antimatter. Now a new experiment is helping us understand the nature of antimatter better than ever before.
New research has compared hydrogen and antihydrogen up to ten decimal places for the very first time.
We hear a lot about the marvellous science going on at CERN. But what goes on behind the scenes?
Collaboration is one of the keys to making African science soar: when the continent's universities work together, they can produce amazing results.
There have been squabbles of course, but the science project in Geneva is an example of putting differences aside to pursue common goals.
Big data is all well and good, but if we want medical breakthroughs, we'll need big theory too.
Antimatter is at the heart of one of the biggest conundrums in physics. Here's why.
Big data is about processing large amounts of data. It is often associated with multiplicities of data. But the ability to generate data outpaces the ability to store it.
A new policy on research outputs and funding will be introduced in South Africa in 2016. But it leaves too much unchanged from the old policy.
The latest data from the particle accelerator that found the Higgs Boson has confirmed another of our theories about how the universe works.
Running the world's largest particle accelerator requires a lot of energy, but it could reveal the secrets of the universe.
The restart of experiments at CERN's Large Hardron Collider could mark the start of a new era of discovery or a big disappointment.
CERN's huge particle accelerator has been switched back on after a two-year upgrade to continue its search for answers.
New results from the Large Hadron Collider further could help eliminate some theoretical possibilities for what lies beyond the standard model of particle physics.
For less than the cost of a single Typhoon jetfighter, the upgraded LHC will push our understanding of physics to the brink.
The 'supercomputer' that processes LHC's data is a networked grid that spans the entire planet.
Ticking off subatomic particles one by one, now let's see what an LHC upgrade will do.
