A dwarf galaxy orbiting the Milky Way is humming with gamma rays, leading astronomers to hypothesize that it could be filled with annihilating dark matter particles.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and most complex machine ever constructed, so it can be hard to fully appreciate its scale.
Version 2.0 of CERN's large hadron collider is set to get back in the discovery business next month, boasting twice the power, tougher wiring, better cooling systems, and upgraded cameras.
We may have found evidence that elusive, mysterious dark matter -- something for which there is no direct proof -- is actually sterile neutrinos. And that's going to take some explaining, by way of a speed-tutorial on quantum mechanics from Julian.
While on its long road to restart, yet another milestone was reached at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) over the weekend.
If you thought the search for the Higgs boson — the elusive particle that endows matter with mass — was epic, spare a thought for the physicists who have been trying to find a way to discover another subatomic particle … Continue reading →
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 →
