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.
The Large Hadron Collider is almost ready to be up and back in action after its shutdown nearly two years ago. So what's in store for the most powerful particle accelerator on Earth? That's a good question.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the machine that has allowed particle physicists to make some startling discoveries, is gearing up for action once more in 2015.
Physicists may have uncovered new important clues about the nature of our universe. They've made important discoveries concerning Bs meson particles, which may explain why the universe contains more matter than antimatter.
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.
The successor to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) - the world's most powerful particle accelerator - will most likely be based in Japan. But this does not mean the end of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, near Geneva.
Five years ago, at breakfast time, the world waited anxiously for news from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The first nervy bunch of protons were due to be fired around the European lab’s latest and biggest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as it kicked i...
CERN engineers have been working through the night this week to move the final replacement dipole magnets into position on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Though there are several still to go, the teams expect to have completed the task by the end of this month.
This year's European Physical Society High-Energy Physics conference, which came to an end at July 24, was packed with results from the Large Hadron Collider.
An impressive infographic style animation shows the vast computer power, including a globe spanning network of data centers, that is needed to filter through the enormous amount of data generated by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments.
Physicists announced today, speaking at the ongoing Moriond conference in La Thuile, Italy, that the new particle discovered at CERN last year that is most likely the Higgs boson is looking more and more like the real thing. However, more analysis is still required before a definitive statement can ...
In an effort to build a next generation of super-colliders to gain ever deeper insights into the fundamental mechanisms of the universe, and especially to examine the properties of the Higgs-like particle that was discovered by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva last year, a new partnership called ...
