The heavy metal of the god particle
It's not too late to upstage those smug Doctor Who fans.
A nearly 6-sigma result says we are now surer than sure that the God particle is real
At a meeting on Tuesday, the ATLAS and CMS experiments are expected to show their first data that offers a peek at the God Particle
A picture starts to emerge from the fog
These ten awe-inspiring science projects range from the world's largest undersea observatory to the "ultimate microscope" to a Jupiter orbiter on a suicide mission--but they're all massive, often in both size and scope
As the U.S.'s premier particle physics machine retires, the search for the Higgs falls to the Large Hadron Collider alone
Move over, LHC -- the ILC will be 20 miles long
Although some of us feel like we've heard this story before
As the Large Hadron Collider readies to be fired up in Geneva, Physicist Brian Cox explains what it might reveal about the workings of the Universe—and why the grandest scientific instrument ever built is well worth the $6 billion investment
The most powerful and complex science experiment in the history of the universe is finally—after 14 years and $10 billion—about to begin. There's no telling what it may find, and that's entirely the point
After years of construction and months of hype, the world's largest particle accelerator goes online today
Memristor could enable instant-on PCs, massive data storage and computers that think like humans
Jellyfish invasions, Internet auctions, god particles: Read about the year's biggest science stories before they happen. Bonus: How to decipher geeky jargon and when to buy a DeLorean
We'll get a vaccine for addiction, debate the future of nuclear power, use new tech to take on water shortages, and-just maybe-find an extra dimension or two. Happy New Year
Physicists are praying that their 4-mile-long machine will detect a tiny bit of matter so elusive that some consider it practically divine.
