To prepare humanity's most complex machine for its next round of awesome physics, it's not simply a question of flicking the 'on' switch. Continue reading →
A fascinating observation has been tentatively announced by scientists using the Japanese SuperKamiokande neutrino detector.
Scientists in Germany said Wednesday they had made the most precise measurement yet of the mass of the electron, one of the building blocks of matter.
New concerns about the world-ending potential of the second most powerful particle accelerator in the world stems from a misconception of "risk." Continue reading →
Dark matter may reveal itself during the next decade.
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 →
A new experiment buried deep underground has proven itself to be the most sensitive dark-matter detector ever built -- but the first results from the high-tech instrument have turned up empty in its search for elusive dark matter.
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 →
