Ancient pigments, modern mystery

When Chinese workers searching for water found the famous Terracotta Warriors instead, they brought to light a scientific mystery.

Scientists progress toward plasma acceleration

Scientists have demonstrated the particle acceleration technique is powerful and efficient enough to drive future accelerators. 

Auger reveals subtlety in cosmic rays

Scientists home in on the make-up of cosmic rays, which are more nuanced than previously thought.

The November Revolution

Forty years ago today, two different research groups announced the discovery of the same new particle and redefined how physicists view the universe.

Big lessons from a Tiny Titan

When it comes to explaining how a massive machine works, sometimes smaller is better.

The intersection of art and science

Statistician Edward Tufte turns scientific notations into artwork.

Fabiola Gianotti chosen as next head of CERN
