Free Software Magazine: "The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is up and running as I write and as far as I can tell I’m still here, so it looks like the doomsayers were a little premature. Unless I’m writing this piece from the far side of the singularity of a black hole in a parallel universe."
Officials at CERN have announced the date in which the beginning of the physics program will begin at the Large Hadron Collider. In other words, the first collisions of two oppositely-directed particle beams with energies of 3.5 TeV per beam will be attempted, for a combined energy of 7 tera-electron volts (TeV).
The Higgs boson is being diligently tracked down at the European particle physics laboratory called the Large Hadron Collider. On Friday, the LHC researchers announced they saw some funny looking bumps in their data that might be a sign of the particle.
Watched this on Netflix streaming last night. It's a really well-done documentary of the final stages of testing the Large Hadron Collider and the experiments leading up to the announcement of the finding of the Higg's Boson. Great stuff if you have any interest in this mammoth machine.
The Swiss particle physics organization European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced on Thursday, December 22, 2011, that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has discovered a boson called Chi-b(3P).
The Nobel Prize for physics was announced today, which went to François Englert and Peter Higgs for the Higgs boson discovery of the subatomic particle that helps define the fabric of the universe, known to many as “the God particle.” This was a highly-anticipated announcement by the science and technology community and is one to be celebrated.
Professor Higgs first put forward the idea of the exi
