Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading →
Physicists of one LHC experiment have announced tantalizing evidence that the Higgs doesn't only decay into other bosons; it also has the ability to decay into fermions. Continue reading →
Although it is just a hint, LHCb physicists are baffled as to why the production of electrons, muons and taus should be defying Standard Model predictions. Continue reading →
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 →
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 →
