Particle physics gets the machine learning treatment as collider data multiplies

The volume of data particle physicists have to sort through at the Large Hadron Collider is staggering, and it's about to increase by an order of magnitude. To cope with this torrent of data, CERN is

5 years after the Higgs boson, the Large Hadron Collider is just getting started

It's been five years since physicists at CERN reported that they had observed a particle "consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson." The discovery capped decades of theory and was an important triu

CERN releases 300TB of Large Hadron Collider data into open access

Cancel your plans for this weekend! CERN just dropped 300 terabytes of hot collider data on the world and you know you want to take a look.

Angry Birds The Particle Physics Board Game: Rovio And CERN Collaborate On Making Learning Quantum Physics Fun

Angry Birds-maker Rovio and CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, are to collaborate on developing "fun learning experiences" aimed at getting kids engaged with science. The collaborat

If you’re reading this, the world didn’t end last night

Well it looks like a world-ending black hole wasn’t formed at the site of the Large Hadron Collider and that we will, in fact, be putting in a full day of work today, tomorrow, and almost every rema

End of the world on Wednesday, take a half day today

CERN’s Large Hadron Collider will be activated this Wednesday. The LHC is a 17-mile long underground tunnel near Geneva that houses the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. Scientists use a
