The Large Hadron Collider has produced a great deal of incredible science, most famously the Higgs Boson — but physicists at CERN, the international organization behind the LHC, are already looking
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
Physicists at MIT have developed and released a $100 muon detector that you can build at home, allowing you to sense deep space bombardment on something that looks like a TV remote. The CosmicWatch is
How do things work? To find out, we observe them and we take them apart. But not everything is easily observed, and until recently some things couldn't be taken apart.
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
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.
If Google is worried about Google Glass <a target="_blank" href="http://www.wired.com/business/2013/05/inherent-dorkiness-of-google-glass/">being too "nerdy"</a>, they probably wouldn't be sending peo

The LHC is recovering from a serious overheating problem, caused by a piece of stale bread dropped by a bird onto an apparently unprotected thermal vent. Impossible, you say? Not impossible. I used to
When it comes to running a gigantic machine capable of ripping a hole in the space-time continuum that could suck the entire earth (and more) into oblivion, it’s probably safe to assume that you can
According to InternetNews.com, the Large Hadron Collider project that we’ve been hearing so much about runs a customized version of Linux called CernVM. Apparently it ran Vista at first, but the Aer
The eight billion dollar LHC didn’t destroy the world last night – that’s good – so here is a great photo set that shows off the fantastic 17-mile long collider.
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
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
