Not just old codgers

During a day of talks at Stanford University, theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind explained “Why I Teach Physics to Old Codgers, and How It Got to Be a YouTube Sensation.”

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.

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.

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.

Letter to the editor: Oldest light?

Reader Bill Principe raises an interesting question about the headline of a recent symmetry article.

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.
