This Huge Art Installation Is Inspired By The LHC

The Amer­ican artist Peter Halley has taken over 460m² of the Schirn Kunsthalle exhibition hall in Frank­furt, turning its huge rotunda into a futuristic exploration of architecture and space that’s inspired in part by the LHC.


Report: A Weasel Shut Down The Large Hadron Collider

A tiny mammal has reportedly brought the world’s largest scientific experiment to a halt. The Large Hadron Collider suffered a power outage last night, after a luckless weasel decided to chew on a 66-kilovolt power cable.


360 Video Of The LHC Is An Amazing Reminder Of How Big The Damn Thing Is

Video: The Large Hadron Collider is impressive for a great many reasons. But forget about all that cutting-edge science for a moment and instead marvel at the scale of the engineering behind the project.


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.


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.


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.
