It seems that at every turn, the Standard Model of physics reinforces its death choke around the Universe as we know it -- but are physicists beginning to see data that bucks this trend? Continue reading →
Large Hadron Collider scientists have detected an ultra-rare subatomic decay for the first time, a decay that is predicted by the Standard Model -- unfortunately, that's one hefty blow against supersymmetry. Continue reading →
Can the hunt for the Higgs boson finally be laid to rest? No -- physicists have only just begun. Continue reading →
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has recreated the world's tiniest droplets of a primordial state of matter that last existed moments after the Big Bang, some 13.82 billion years ago. Continue reading →
How the modern universe is primarily composed of matter and not antimatter has foxed astrophysicists for decades, but a result from an LHC experiment has uncovered a new clue behind the matter-antimatter asymmetry mystery. Continue reading →
Forget the Higgs boson's delusions of grandeur, the exchange particle that gives stuff mass appears to be something of a disappointment. ->
What may end up being the crown jewel of the International Space Station landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Thursday to begin preparations for launch on the last shuttle mission in February.
Called "the God Particle" the Higgs boson could change our view of the universe... if only we could find it!
