Volunteers from anywhere can participate in the “Name that Neutrino” project, which asks users to help categorize IceCube data. 


A new experiment pulled off the most precise measurement of an electron’s self-generated magnetic field—and the universe’s subatomic model is at stake.

Science Friday

Experts Janna Levin and Feryal Özel join Science Friday to talk about a theory linking dark energy to black holes, along with other recent black hole breakthroughs.

How to put together an international physics experiment


To build the DUNE neutrino experiment and its associated accelerator upgrade, experts invent customized ways to transport fragile, expensive and highly specialized components.


Do hidden influences give neutrinos their tiny mass?

The quest to understand the small mass of neutrinos is also a quest to discover new particles.


Kétévi Assamagan pays it forward

Kétévi Assamagan's contributions to physics go beyond his research at the Large Hadron Collider.


What the Higgs boson tells us about the universe

The Higgs boson is the only fundamental particle known to be scalar, meaning it has no quantum spin. This fact answers questions about our universe, but it also raises new ones.


Creating the next 3D maps of the universe

Scientists have proposed new instruments that would use spectroscopy to decode dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation.


How to do particle physics in a climate emergency

Scientists in the particle physics community are bringing environmental and climate issues to the table in discussions about future research.


A new way to explore proton’s structure with neutrinos yields first results

Physicists used MINERvA, a Fermilab neutrino experiment, to measure the proton’s size and structure using a neutrino-scattering technique.


Proposed experiment seeks origin of cosmic neutrinos

Most astronomers trek to the mountaintops to study the stars, but a group of physicists are seeking the secrets of the cosmos with a detector at the bottom of the ocean.


Ways to weigh a neutrino

For decades scientists have tried to find a way to measure the mass of the lightest matter particle known to exist. Three new approaches now have a chance to succeed.
