The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has recreated the world's tiniest droplets of a primordial state of matter that last existed moments after the Big Bang, some 13.82 billion years ago. Continue reading →
Forget the Higgs boson's delusions of grandeur, the exchange particle that gives stuff mass appears to be something of a disappointment. ->
A high-energy experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is turning up results that challenge the Standard Model of physics.
When a star dies, depending on its mass, it will form a white dwarf, neutron star or a black hole. Or will it? Perhaps there's an intermediate "electroweak" phase that may save the remnant from black hole doom.
After the early announcement on Friday that CERN had successfully circulated the first protons around the 17 mile-long ring of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), really early news of the first ever particle collisions inside the LHC has been announced. According to several sources, these low-energy c...
There's growing evidence that the detected Higgs boson is born from the Standard Model and not from more exotic physics.
Physicists have spotted something that looks like the Higgs boson, but what if it's actually a more exotic Higgs doppelganger?
It's practically a cliche these days to compare scientific pursuits to unraveling a mystery, but it's an accurate description of the ongoing search for neutrinos. Neutrinos, the so-called "ghost particles," rarely interact with other particles, which makes them extremely difficult to detect. Physic...
