Method might shrink particle accelerators from town size to table size
For one thing, there would be a glut of aspiring cinematographers and sound designers.
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
The Large Hadron Collider is now officially the world's most powerful particle accelerator
Physicists are praying that their 4-mile-long machine will detect a tiny bit of matter so elusive that some consider it practically divine.
The most complex machines ever built don't just hunt for obscure subatomic bits
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.
Multi-terawatt lasers make acceleration possible on a scale of inches instead of miles
After years of construction and months of hype, the world's largest particle accelerator goes online today
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.
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.
Move over, LHC -- the ILC will be 20 miles long
Meet EMMA, the Electron Model of Many Applications
The fallacy of the black hole in Switzerland that would swallow Earth.
A glimpse of "the toe of God"
Surf's up at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California.
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
