Large Hadron Collider circulates beams at 3.5 tera-electron-volts, bringing it closer to CERN's goal of conducting research into fundamental physics.
The recently restarted Large Hadron Collider has become the world's most powerful particle accelerator, after setting a new record for beam intensity.
CERN is set to run its giant particle collider for 18 to 24 months at a modest power level as it continues to check out the machinery.
Chance of discovering new physical phenomena with Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator leads CERN to postpone energy-doubling upgrade.
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.
The world's largest physics experiment has seen a series of setbacks since September, but CERN is determined that "the LHC will run next year."
The blueprints are ready. If it gets funded, the multibillion-dollar International Linear Collider could help solve the mystery of cosmic dark matter.
The prestigious award goes to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs, who a half-century ago independently proposed what became the Higgs boson, discovered in 2012.
Large Hadron Collider engineers are ironing out wrinkles in a tremendously complicated machine that consumes about the same power as all Geneva.
Electrons gone wild burn their way through acrylic slabs to create Shockfossils, branching works of art that capture the raw power of electricity.
