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 →
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.
