Ten things you might not know about particle accelerators

From accelerators unexpectedly beneath your feet to a ferret that once cleaned accelerator components, symmetry shares some lesser-known facts about particle accelerators.

From quark soup to ordinary matter

Scientists have gained new insight into how matter can change from a hot soup of particles to the matter we know today.

LHC begins long road to restart

Physicists have begun to reawaken CERN’s accelerator complex, with a goal of having beam ready for the next run of the LHC in early 2015.

CERN's LHCb experiment sees exotic particle

An analysis using LHC data verifies the existence of an exotic four-quark hadron.

Searching for the  holographic universe

Physicist Aaron Chou keeps the Holometer experiment—which looks for a phenomenon whose implications border on the unreal—grounded in the realities of day-to-day operations.

Possible hints of dark matter in Fermi data

Scientists say collisions between dark matter particles might be the cause of a curious excess of gamma-ray light coming from the center of our galaxy.

Tufte’s Feynman sculptures come to Fermilab

Edward Tufte, celebrated statistician and master of informational graphics, transforms physics notations into works of art.

Expanding universe measured with precision

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has made the most precise measurement of the expansion rate of the universe over a period of time, an important step toward understanding dark energy.

The oldest light in the universe

The Cosmic Microwave Background, leftover light from the big bang, carries a wealth of information about the universe—for those who can read it.
