Method might shrink particle accelerators from town size to table size
Magic to expect from the world's brightest source of x-rays
Surf's up at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California.
CERN physicists have made a particle that likely existed for just a microsecond after the Big Bang.
Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have shrunk a high-energy particle accelerator from the length of two football fields to just 1 inch.
And particle accelerators, and four-dimensional space, and a bunch of other cool stuff. Just watch these videos.
Sure, the Large Hadron Collider has another two decades of cutting-edge science left in it, but physicists are already designing the high energy experiments of the future.
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
Meet EMMA, the Electron Model of Many Applications
Not your rainy afternoon trip to the science museum
A long-forgotten physics paper holds the secret
Move over, LHC -- the ILC will be 20 miles long
The most complex machines ever built don't just hunt for obscure subatomic bits
Multi-terawatt lasers make acceleration possible on a scale of inches instead of miles
Thanks to particle accelerators, paleontologists can now don the best X-ray specs in the world
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
In the fight against cancer, atomic physicists call in the big guns
The fallacy of the black hole in Switzerland that would swallow Earth.
According to the laws of physics, the world should not exist. To explain why we're here, scientists are recreating the universe's fiery beginnings by pitting matter against antimatter and watching them annihilate.
Physicists are praying that their 4-mile-long machine will detect a tiny bit of matter so elusive that some consider it practically divine.
