Could LHC's data bump just be a waste of time and effort?
CERN may have discovered a new particle, and it's even more elusive that the Higgs boson.
Physicists across the globe are apparently revving up with thrill after the biggest atom smasher of the world begins whirring again to produce data.
It turns out that CERN's Large Hadron Collider has discovered a new class of particles known as pentaquarks. The new discovery could herald a new way to think about particle physics.
CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has officially started delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months.
The world's most powerful particle accelerator has started up once more. After two years of upgrades and repairs, proton beams once again circulated around the Large Hadron Collider.
Last year, CERN announced that it had discovered a new elementary particle, the Higgs particle, also long known as the 'God particle.' Now, scientists are taking a second look at the finding and believe that this particle wasn't the Higgs particle at all and may just look like it.
Future areas may include the development and characterization of innovative materials for applications in extreme conditions and for cutting-edge scientific performances, the development of new micro-technologies to be applied in miniaturized distributed sensor systems and the development and testin...
Research output amounts to much more than just academic papers. It is important that underlying datasets, and the software used to analyze them, are also properly cited and that the researchers behind these are given credit for their work.
Ever-cheaper sensing and data-storage technologies are driving an explosion in data across many fields of science, as well as for businesses of all sizes.
The Future Circular Collider (FCC) could have a circumference of 80 to 100 kilometres (the LHC has a circumference of 27km), but first a five-year exploratory study will be carried out to look into the feasibility and cost of various different machines.
