An experiment at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer intends to test several theories about the universe, including the holographic principle.
Astronomers have mapped the Milky Way's position to the outskirts of a supercluster of galaxies, newly dubbed Laniakea, meaning "Immense Heaven".
A Fermilab theoretical physicist suggests that qualities of the "God particle" show an "alternate" universe could easily "spread out and destroy us."
A 570-megapixel camera has captured its first images in a quest to map deep space dark energy.
week in review Scientists discover the "God particle," while Facebook users discover an e-mail black hole. Also: Apple scores twin legal victories.
Scientists at CERN say they've almost certainly located the elusive particle, which would confirm the standard model of physics. The evidence is "very strong, very solid."
The European nuclear research agency collides two high-power proton beams early this morning, marking the beginning of this year's Large Hadron Collider physics data collection.
The hunt for the Higgs boson thickens as U.S. scientists find further evidence of the mass-imparting particle that closely matches experiments from the Large Hadron Collider.
Algorithm has passengers board in a set order, reducing the aisle traffic jam and potentially saving more than $1 billion for the industry.
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.
