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.
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.
Boffins at CERN have identified a particle consistent with the elusive Higgs boson -- it's a fine day for science.
Chance of discovering new physical phenomena with Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator leads CERN to postpone energy-doubling upgrade.
The Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator has moved rapidly from tentative operation to scientific results, researchers say at a Paris conference.
Large Hadron Collider engineers are ironing out wrinkles in a tremendously complicated machine that consumes about the same power as all Geneva.
It takes a small city of researchers to run the Large Hadron Collider and its collection of experiments. Its residents speak their own language, too.
CERN's Large Hadron Collider pinpoints its first particle, the sought-after beauty quark.
After a delay from an electrical hiccup, researchers at CERN successfully operate the Large Hadron Collider and see "beautiful tracks" of colliding protons.
Large Hadron Collider circulates beams at 3.5 tera-electron-volts, bringing it closer to CERN's goal of conducting research into fundamental physics.
