The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is getting a big boost to its performance. Unfortunately, for fans of ground-breaking physics, the whole thing has to be shut down for two years while the work is done.
The new and unknown particle is just over a fifth of the mass of the Higgs boson. There's nothing in any of the current models that predicts this mass. However, It's unlikely to be physics-breaking.
The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment (AWAKE) at CERN is a new kind of machine that could accelerate electrons over a fraction of the distance needed by other accelerators.
Researchers have found a way to accelerate antimatter in a 1000x smaller space than current accelerators, boosting the science of exotic particles.
In this case a beam of lead “atoms” traveled through the accelerator with at least one electron attached. The physicists hope to one day use these accelerated atoms in a next-generation experiment.
A team of high-energy experimental particle physicists has uncovered possible evidence of a subatomic quasiparticle dubbed an 'odderon' that - until now - had only been theorized to exist.
A pair of new research papers using theoretical methods have independently unearthed another new particle predicted by the laws of physics.
Public data leading to a discovery outside the organization is a big step.
The Large Hadron Collider has once again done what it does best – smash bits of matter together and find new particles in the carnage.
The first stable proton beams of the year have arrived at CERN.
Physicists at CERN have reported an unexplained phenomenon in their giant ion collider device - for the first time ever, particles called 'strange hadrons' have been observed in rare proton collisions.
Engineers at CERN took magnets originally designed for the LHC, combined them with X-ray focusing technology originally designed for space, and built a device that could spot axions arriving here from the Sun.
