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
Memristor could enable instant-on PCs, massive data storage and computers that think like humans
Physicists are praying that their 4-mile-long machine will detect a tiny bit of matter so elusive that some consider it practically divine.
A picture starts to emerge from the fog
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
The most complex machines ever built don't just hunt for obscure subatomic bits
Its significance, though, awaits further investigation.

A glimpse of "the toe of God"
François Englert and Peter Higgs just received the Nobel Prize in Physics for laying the groundwork for the discovery of the Higgs boson. But can someone please explain what a Higgs is? Like, really simply.
A Reader Inquires: I read something recently about physicists who study corporate boards. How is this science?
A fourth neutrino could help explain dark matter
