The LHC Has Seen An Intriguing Glimpse Of What Could Be A New Particle 

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider have seen the first traces of what they believe could be a new fundamental particle.


Fabiola Gianotti Becomes First Woman Physicist To Take The Reins At CERN

Particle physicist Fabiola Gianotti has become the first woman to head CERN, the organisation based in Switzerland that is home to the Large Hadron Collider. She succeeds outgoing director-general Rolf Heuer, who oversaw the laboratory’s operations for the last seven years.


Don't Get Too Excited Yet About The LHC's Hint Of A New Particle 

Earlier this week, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider announced they’d found tantalising traces of a possible new fundamental particle — perhaps a heavier cousin of the Higgs boson, or the elusive graviton, a quantum carrier of the force of gravity.


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 collider has ever achieved in the past.


This Is What Happens When An Indie Band Experiments At The LHC

It’s normally just researchers that get to experiment at the LHC. But one physicist has decided to invite a series of bands to play around at the world’s largest science lab — and this is the result.


Newspaper Claims Large Hadron Collider Being Used As 'Stargate'

Bad news, citizens of Earth: those evil physicists at CERN are once again hellbent on vaporising the Earth and ending the universe as we know it as the Large Hadron Collider ramps up to unprecedented energies. That’s according to Lonnie Robinson, intrepid correspondent/prophet of doom for The Daily Reporter in Coldwater, Michigan, who sees the signs of our imminent destruction everywhere he looks (including The Simpsons). He even pegs the specific day on which we can probably expect global annihilation: September 24, 2015.


The LHC Has Discovered A New Sub-Atomic Particle Called A Pentaquark

After restarting to run at higher power than ever, the Large Hadron Collider has made its first proper discovery. Today, a team of scientists announced that they have found a new class of sub-atomic particles known as pentaquarks.


From Today, The LHC Runs At Full Power To Push The Limits Of Physics

As of today, the Large Hadron Collider will run at full, record-breaking power levels, as scientists kick off a new set of experiments that will help us understand the secrets of particle physics.


The Large Hadron Collider Just Detected Extremely Rare Particle Decays

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have just announced the detection of a rare particle decay “harder to find than the famous Higgs particle”. The strange B meson is certainly a lot less famous than the Higgs boson, but it also has an important role to play in the Standard Model of particle physics.


This Opera Filmed Inside The CERN Large Hadron Collider Looks Epic

Symmetry is a dance and opera film that was directed by Ruben van Leer and was shot inside the CERN Large Hadron Collider. It looks pretty epic and totally intriguing with some scenes feeling a little bit like Interstellar. The film will premiere on March 15 in Amsterdam.
