A 'crack in the cosmic egg'

The recent BICEP2 discovery of evidence for cosmic inflation might point to new physics.

Is the universe balanced on a pinhead?

New precise measurements of the mass of the top quark bring back the question: Is our universe inherently unstable?

Letter to the editor: Oldest light?

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

Documenting the development of discovery

Creating a compelling story about the search for the secrets of the universe in Particle Fever helped filmmaker Mark Levinson find his calling.

Not just old codgers

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.

Tracking particles faster at the LHC

A new trigger system will expand what ATLAS scientists can look for during high-energy collisions at the Large Hadron Collider.

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.
