‘Particle Fever’ opens in the US

Particle Fever, a documentary that follows scientists involved in research at the Large Hadron Collider, opens this week in select theaters across the United States.


CDMS result covers new ground in search for dark matter

The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search has set more stringent limits on light dark matter.


Scientists complete the top quark puzzle

Fermilab’s CDF and DZero experiments have discovered the last predicted way to produce the top quark, the heaviest elementary particle.


‘Black widow’ pulsars consume their mates

With a deadly embrace, ‘spidery’ pulsars devour their partners. One such pulsar is the first rapidly spinning black widow to be discovered using only gamma rays.


Cosmic rays on demand

At SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, researchers are using a particle accelerator to help them search for the source of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.


Particle physics enthusiast ties for gold

Olympic downhill skier Dominique Gisin, who tied for gold in Sochi, is a fan of particle physics.


NOvA sees first long-distance neutrinos

Even though only a portion of the NOvA neutrino experiment is completed, it has already seen its first neutrinos.


Quarks in the looking glass

A recent experiment at Jefferson Lab probed the mirror symmetry of quarks, determining that one of their intrinsic properties is non-zero—as predicted by the Standard Model.


A new dark-energy detector on the horizon

A dark-energy detector under development at Fermilab uses a different technique to generate full-color images of astronomical objects.


First beam of antihydrogen atoms produced at CERN

The ASACUSA collaboration at CERN has successfully performed a new technique that will help them study the properties of antimatter.
