Researchers have produced and captured antihydrogen atoms using strong magnetic fields in the Alpha experiment at CERN.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research says external module on the International Space Station will look for antimatter and dark matter while measuring cosmic ray composition.
The recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has become the world's most powerful particle accelerator, after setting a new record for beam intensity.
World's largest particle accelerator is set to restart late Monday following 10 weeks of technical maintenance and a glitch on Saturday.
The nuclear research agency says it's satisfied that the Large Hadron Collider needs no more repairs and can get back to where it left off last fall.
A $2 billion cosmic ray detector attached to the International Space Station today already is beaming down a steady stream of data as torrents of high-energy particles from deep space pass through.
Squeezing more bunches of protons onto the particle accelerator's beams increases the data-gathering rate--and the odds the Higgs boson will turn up at CERN.
Despite high energy costs, the particle accelerator will now run through the winter to make sure the experiment provides workable results.
Crave UK chats with a particle physicist directly involved in the Large Hadron Collider experiments to get a sense of what it's like to work in a geek heaven.
We interview one of the physicists looking for the Higgs boson at CERN. He talks to us about what it's like working at the geekiest place on Earth -- stand by for science!
