The Higgs-shaped elephant in the room
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
Is Particle Physics About to Crack Wide Open?
Hints of an unexpected new particle could be confirmed within days—and if it is, the Standard Model could be going down
Large Hadron Collider results may hint at a new era of physics
Are we about to enter a new era of physics? Data collected by the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland may have identified particle activity that doesn’t fit the standard laws of physics.

The LHC Is Now Colliding Lead at the Highest-Ever Energies
The Large Hadron Collider has been back online and pushing the limits of physics again for a few months now. But it’s about to enter a new phase, colliding lead ions at twice the energy that any colli...
CERN Collides Heavy Nuclei At New Record High Energy
One of the very first collisions recorded between two lead ions at the LHC's top energy. The energy in the center-of-mass system is approximately 1000 TeV. Todays events bring collisions physics into ...
Large Hadron Collider data may unearth a parallel universe
The 'atom smasher' at Cern is turned up to its highest levels in a bid to detect miniature black holes, which are considered a key sign of a 'multiverse'. And data collected since June is now being an...
Latest Experiment At Large Hadron Collider Reports First Results
After a two-year hiatus, the Large Hadron Collider, the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world, began its second run of experiments in June, smashing together subatomic particles ...
Tiny Drops Of Early Universe 'Perfect' Fluid
First results from collisions of three-particle ions with gold nuclei reveal clear-cut evidence of primordial soup's signature particle flow. The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a particle col...
Will The Large Hadron Collider Open Up A Portal To Another Dimension?
The director of research at CERN, physicist Sergio Bertolucci, has stated that the LHC may create a “door” to “an extra dimension”. According to him, something might come out of that door, or “we mig...
A multiverse hiding in the Large Hadron Collider
Physicists will be looking for mini black holes when the Large Hadron Collider restarts this month. It's impossible for the LHC to generate any sort of black hole that would be remotely unsafe, but th...
