Multiparton interactions at the Large Hadron Collider

Away from the high-profile Higgs hunting, a new paper sheds some light on the complex inner life of the proton, and how it affects results from CERN’s LHC For most of the past two years, before it stopped last week for a while, the LHC was making protons collide head…

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…

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…

Proof of extra dimensions possible next year: CERN

Scientists at the CERN research center say their “Big Bang” project is going beyond all expectations and the first proof of the existence of dimensions beyond the known four could emerge next year. In surveys of results of nearly 8 months of experiments in their Large Hadron Collider (LHC), they…
