The United States' only particle physics lab, residing in Batavia, Ill., stays alive after receiving a $5 million cash infusion from an unnamed philanthropist.
A Fermilab theoretical physicist suggests that qualities of the "God particle" show an "alternate" universe could easily "spread out and destroy us."
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.
Fermilab scientists have rigged this gigantic beast of a snapper to look deep into space for evidence of dark energy, which is supposedly causing the universe to expand at an increased speed.
Europe's CERN laboratory is a defendant in a lawsuit that asks for more time to assess the safety of the Large Hadron Collider, the world's biggest particle accelerator.
Algorithm has passengers board in a set order, reducing the aisle traffic jam and potentially saving more than $1 billion for the industry.
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.
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."
While the Large Hadron Collider sits idle somewhere beneath the Alps, the American Tevatron Accelerator is making strides. But does it have a rap video?
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.
