Top quark still raising questions

Why are scientists still interested in the heaviest fundamental particle nearly 20 years after its discovery?

‘CERN People’ tells it like it is

A new video series about scientists at CERN pulls back the curtain on what it’s like to be a physicist during a pivotal time in the field.

To catch a gravitational wave

Advanced LIGO, designed to detect gravitational waves, will eventually be 1000 times more powerful than its predecessor.

Q&A: Katherine Freese

The new director of the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics talks neutrinos, women in science, and the hunt for dark matter.

500-mile neutrino experiment up and running

Construction is complete for NOvA, the longest-distance neutrino experiment in the world.

Accelerating the fight against cancer

As charged-particle therapies grow in popularity, physicists are working with other experts to make them smaller, cheaper and more effective—and more available to cancer patients in the United States.
