In an upcoming refresh, particle physics will define units of measurement such as the meter, the kilogram and the second.
Sometimes, physics papers turn funny.
The announcement on July 4 was just one part of the story. Take a peek behind the scenes of the discovery of the Higgs boson.
It’s less of a collision and more of a symphony.
The era of multi-messenger astronomy promises rich rewards—and a steep learning curve.
After the musician learned that grad students at CERN had created a parody of his 2004 single “Collide,” he flew to Switzerland to sing it at the LHC.
