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.
Chance of discovering new physical phenomena with Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator leads CERN to postpone energy-doubling upgrade.
Large Hadron Collider engineers are ironing out wrinkles in a tremendously complicated machine that consumes about the same power as all Geneva.
With the Large Hadron Collider experiments under way, physicists are getting new data to anchor their theories.
After a delay from an electrical hiccup, researchers at CERN successfully operate the Large Hadron Collider and see "beautiful tracks" of colliding protons.
It was risky to run a gigantic particle accelerator up to its highest energy level yet in such a visible way. But it's time for lower barriers between scientists and the public.
The LHC today set the record for the strongest ever successful particle collisions within a laboratory environment, and the record for number of exclamation marks in a tweet
Large Hadron Collider circulates beams at 3.5 tera-electron-volts, bringing it closer to CERN's goal of conducting research into fundamental physics.
A woman appeals to the highest court in Germany to get the Large Hadron Collider stopped. The court decides she has no proof of any impending doom.
