World’s Most Powerful Particle Collider to Restart in March 2015 – What Can We Expect?

[Updated/corrected, April 22, 2015] The world’s most powerful particle accelerator — the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) — is scheduled to restart in March of 2015, after a two year hiatus for repairs and upgrades (and data analysis). The machine is located at CERN (in Switzerland) the largest and most prestigious high energy physics laboratory in […]

'Super Symmetry' Theory Fails Collider Tests – Physicists Must Seek New 'Theories of Everything'

It was perhaps particle physics’ most elegant and aesthetically appealing theory of (almost) everything: Super Symmetry (SUSY). SUSY, a type of gauge theory developed over the past thirty years, was an ambitious attempt to integrate elementary particle physics with a broader theoretical understanding of the cosmos — an attempt to approach a ‘Theory of Everything.’

CERN Physicists 'Sure' They Have Found A 'Boson' Particle – But Is It The Higgs Boson?

  Two particle detector teams working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN facility in Switzerland have announced the discovery of a new particle — a boson  — that could be THE so-called ‘god’ particle, The Higgs boson. The theoretical Higgs boson was originally postulated as a key particle that confers mass onto

Particle Collider May Have Found New Particle – Key to Missing Antimatter

Physicists attending the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Symposium in Paris this week have reported the results of their data analysis from recent proton collision experiments, and their preliminary findings just might herald the dawn of a ‘new age’ in quantum physics. The LHC is a 17 mile/27 km, circular  proton collider (part of CERN) located

CERN: 'Speed of Light Exceeded' (Maybe) – Physics World Excited, but Skeptical

The news from CERN physicists that the speed of light “may have been exceeded” sent a lightning bolt of excitement and disbelief (not quite surpassing the speed of light) through the world’s physics community. Fully accepting that their results would be met with great skepticism, the same physicists are inviting other particle physicists and labs to verify — or disprove — their results, which, if validated, will overturn one of the principle tenets of modern physics: that nothing travels faster than the speed of ligh
