New measurements of the electron have confirmed, to the smallest precision attainable, that it has a perfect roundness -- this is bad news for theories of physics beyond the standard model. Continue reading →
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 →
New calculations by physicists characterizing the Higgs particle shows the Universe may have a sell-by date.
Just when the media hysteria over doomsday scenarios relating to the Large Hadron Collider has died down, along comes a visually stunning short film from L Studio called Rift that explores just what such a scenario might look like. It's described as "a surreal interpretation of Pandora's ...
