What Hawking really meant

Fermilab physicist Don Lincoln explains the idea of a metastable universe, what it has to do with the Higgs boson, and why we're still in good shape.

Watching ‘the clock’ at the LHC

As time ticks down to the restart of the Large Hadron Collider, scientists are making sure their detectors run like clockwork.

Particle physics to aid nuclear cleanup

Cosmic rays can help scientists do something no one else can: safely image the interior of the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

True tales of science

signal to background

True tales of science

When two theoretical physicists crossed paths at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, the Story Collider was born.

Detectors in daily life

Not only are particle detectors essential to making discoveries in particle physics, they also play important roles in industry, science and medicine.

First measurement of sun’s real-time energy

The Borexino neutrino experiment in Italy found that the sun releases the same amount of energy today as it did 100,000 years ago.

Forecasting the future

Forecasting the future

Physicists and other scientists use the GEANT4 toolkit to identify problems before they occur.

Massive neutrino experiment proposed in China

China’s neutrino physics program could soon expand with a new experiment aimed at cracking a critical neutrino mystery.

Holographic universe experiment begins

The Holometer experiment will test whether our universe is coded into 2-D packets many trillion times smaller than an atom.
