Scientists might need to go beyond the Standard Model to explain the mass of the Higgs-like boson observed at the Large Hadron Collider.
Filled with rare, low-radioactivity material, the DarkSide-50 experiment will have some of the lowest background rates of any dark-matter detector.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab have measured the quality of beam produced by a plasma accelerator, revealing that this novel type of accelerator may be better suited for light-source science than prev
As physicists design new "tabletop" accelerators that power particles with plasma, they also need to reinvent the tools they use to view the beam.
If you could detect a bowling ball’s gravitational waves, you would know when someone threw the ball—even if you were standing outside the bowling alley.
A growing suite of computational instruments is helping scientists determine how fast local concentrations of dark matter move, which in turn could help them cut in on the dance of dark matter part
From supernova explosions to writhing tendrils of dark matter, visualizations give new life to models and theories.
This summer, seven young coding whizzes contributed to CERN projects through the Google Summer of Code program.
