In the roller-coaster rumor mill that surrounds some of the biggest physics endeavors of our time, it pays to remain skeptical when extraordinary claims of historic discoveries are made on social media.
As the year draws to a close and the Large Hadron Collider prepares for a winter break, a tantalizing hint of new physics surfaces in particle collision data. Continue reading →
Science fiction literature is full of stories in which tunnels in space-time — known as wormholes — are used for time travel. How much fact lies within the fiction? The answer is, more than you might think.
A US-based laboratory has produced tiny droplets of a state of matter that existed in the first few milliseconds after the Big Bang after slamming particles together at close to the speed of light.
Has Stephen Hawking found the 'emergency exit' for information falling into a black hole?
In a new blow for the futuristic 'supersymmetry' theory of the universe's basic anatomy, experts reported fresh evidence Monday of subatomic activity consistent with the mainstream Standard Model of particle physics.
Physicists have discovered the elusive pentaquark -- a collection of five quarks bound together to form an exotic state of matter.
It's official: After a long 27 month hiatus for upgrades and a 2 month restart, the world's largest particle accelerator is back in the particle collision business.
