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.
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 →
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 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 →
While looking for a strange state of matter in two particle accelerators, it has been announced that another, totally unexpected, particle has been discovered. Continue reading →
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 →
