Comedy comes to Cern with scientists’ standup night

Six research scientists at Large Hadron Collider facility will host comedy night in bid to broaden science’s appeal Despite the one about the Higgs boson that goes to church (you can’t have mass without him) and the atom certain it lost an electron (it’s positive), physics isn’t exactly renowned for…

Large Hadron Collider sets new record with proton collision

The world’s largest particle collider notched up a new record on Thursday as it escalated its quest to find fundamental matter and explore the origins of the Universe, CERN said. At 00:38 am Thursday (2238 GMT Wednesday), the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) brought together two opposing beams of protons, each…

First evidence for string theory at the Large Hadron Collider

A bug in the software used to model the detectors at the Large Hadron Collider could have been covering up evidence for extra space time dimensions. Complex software models are used to understand the results from the Large Hadron Collider. These include simulations of the particle physics in the proton-proton…

Large Hadron Collider finds new variant of particle

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), famously engaged in the quest for the Higgs boson, has turned up a heavier variant of a sub-atomic particle first discovered a quarter-century ago, scientists reported on Thursday. The newcomer is called Chi-b(3P), which was uncovered in the debris from colliding protons, according to research published in the…

Evidence of elusive ‘God particle’ fades

WASHINGTON — International scientists searching to solve the greatest riddle in all of physics said Monday that signs are fading of the elusive Higgs-Boson particle, which is believed to give objects mass. Just last month, physicists announced at a European conference that a big atom-smasher experiment had shown tantalizing hints…

Large Hadron Collider breaks another particle acceleration record

PARIS — The world’s biggest particle collider set a new record early Monday, a feat that should accelerate the quest to pinpoint the elusive particle known as the Higgs Boson, a senior physicist said. “Last night, a symbolic frontier was crossed,” said Michel Spiro, president of the board of the…

Israel becomes CERN nuclear group member

JERUSALEM (AFP) – Israel’s cabinet on Sunday announced it had approved the country’s membership in the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, becoming the research group’s first non-European delegation. “Israel is joining an exclusive club, which provides unusual visibility, exposure, prestige and international status,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in announcing…
