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.


Higgs Boson Mug Serves Up Two Scoops Of Science With Your Coffee

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but why just feed your body after you’ve rolled out of bed in the morning? Feed your mind too, with ThinkGeek’s heat-sensitive colour-changing Higgs Boson mug which enlightens you with details about the Large Hadron Collider and what it’s hunting for.


This Large Hadron Collider Umbrella Keeps You Dry With Science

As CERN’s Large Hadron Collider attempts to discover unknown particles that could unravel the mysteries of our universe, this LHC-themed umbrella will help you deal with more common particles as they fall from a raincloud.


Large Hadron Collider Finds New Particle Unlike Any Other Form Of Matter

Not content with perhaps the biggest scientific discovery of the decade, scientists at the Large Hadron Collide continue to search for new particles — and now they have found one that seems to be an entirely new form of matter.
