What shape is an electron? The answer, believe it or not, has implications for our understanding of the entire universe, and could reveal whether there are mysterious particles still to be discovered.
The Large Hadron Collider has generated mind-blowing science in the last decade – including the Higgs boson particle. Why is the LHC so important, and how will physicists use it in the years to come?
Cosmologists are heading back to their chalkboards as the experiments designed to figure out what this unknown 84 percent of our universe actually is come up empty.
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.
New research has compared hydrogen and antihydrogen up to ten decimal places for the very first time.
Particle accelerators are helping to push forward the frontiers of theoretical physics but they've also had more impact on your everyday life than you realise.
Getting tellurium and phosphorus to form a molecule is stupidly hard and not very glamorous. Here's why it's worth the effort.
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.
We talk about mass all the time but what is it that actually gives an object mass? And why do some things have mass and others have no mass at all?
The Nobel Prize-winning research on neutrinos is expected to push the boundaries of science and technology.
A new detector built deep underground in a gold mine will hopefully unravel the mystery of dark matter.
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.
Subatomic particles have shaped and continue to shape our universe but despite perfect predictions by physicists, the theory about unseen particles is still wrong.
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.
The Large Hadron Collider is ramping up to probe even deeper into the fundamental constituents of matter.
