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.

The LHC Is Back In Business. But What Is It Really Going To Tell Us?

After two years of upgrades, the world’s largest particle accelerator is back and business. And it’s already bashing subatomic particles together at higher energies than ever before to probe the most fundamental questions about the nature of the universe.

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.

Tevatron Reveals Higgs Boson Properties -- 4 Years After Shutting Down

The Tevatron collider — the world’s second most powerful particle accelerator — was shut down in 2011. Now, from beyond the grave, it’s revealing properties of the Higgs boson.

Giz Explains Physics: World's Biggest Physics Experiment To Reboot

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the most audacious physics experiment in human history. Now scientists are about to restart the giant particle collider for a new set of experiments. Last time, they did the almost-impossible and found the Higgs Boson. This time, they might find something even more exciting.

The Photography At CERN Is Helping Solve The Mysteries Of The Universe

Everyone’s favourite mega-machine, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, is meant to help humans some of the most basic questions about the nature of our world. How it goes about this is — in a word — complex. But part of it involves a bit of good old-fashioned (kind of) photography.

The LHC Is Going To Produce 400PB Of Data Every Year

At the Large Hadron Collider, some serious science goes down. So serious, in fact, that the facility plans to ratchet up its data collection to the point where it’s creating a staggering 400PB of data every year.

What It Takes To Build The Largest Particle Collider Ever Made

The Large Hadron Collider is an enormous feat of engineering: A 27.36km tunnel packed with fragile scientific instruments that took 25 years to imagine and 10 to construct. But now, scientists at CERN have chosen an engineering firm to build its successor — a collider that will be triple the size of the LHC.
