Particle physicists might be on the brink of a major breakthrough.
Record precision measurements at Cern may help explain why the universe has more matter than antimatter.
New particles or forces may exist that aren’t accounted for in the standard model.
If the finding really is the result of new fundamental particles then it will finally be the breakthrough that physicists have been yearning for for decades.
New physics may be needed to explain why there’s more matter than antimatter in the universe.
When scientists created the Higgs particle with protons, they needed the 10km-wide Large Hadron Collider. A muon machine could achieve it with a diameter of just 200 metres.
From the subatomic to the cosmic, don’t think for a second that we’re at the end of scientific history.
A new experiment at CERN has discovered a source of asymmetry between matter and antimatter that could help explain why we are here at all.
A new collider at CERN could push particle physics deep into an unexplored microscopic realm.
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.
We hear a lot about the marvellous science going on at CERN. But what goes on behind the scenes?
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.
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.
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.
