Higgs-boson pairs could help scientists understand the stability of our universe. The trick is finding them.
Missing visits to the museum? Or in need of some home-school activities? Check out these five do-it-yourself physics demos!
Scientists in Latin America recently published the first coordinated plan for the region’s research in high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
The observatory has made detailed information about an initial selection of its recorded cosmic-ray events available for outside scientists to use.
Particle physics might be complex, but it’s nothing compared to the confusion of human existence.
Later this decade, the Large Hadron Collider will be upgraded to the High-Luminosity LHC. What does “luminosity” mean in particle physics?
Scientists wrote more than 1500 letters of interest to share ideas about what they hope the next decade of particle physics will bring.
The ATLAS collaboration has begun to publish likelihood functions, information that will allow researchers to better understand and use their experiment’s data in future analyses.
Once the most popular framework for physics beyond the Standard Model, supersymmetry is facing a reckoning—but many researchers are not giving up on it yet.
Workshops around the world train science teachers to incorporate particle physics into their classrooms.
Matter and antimatter particles can behave differently, but where these differences show up (and where they don’t) is still a puzzle.
Until recently, scientists had never detected black holes in the “mass gap”—now, particle physicists are exploring ideas beyond the Standard Model that could explain them.
Scientists show how quantum computing could be a game-changer in our understanding of quantum processes.
Symmetry writer Mike Perricone’s favorite physics books of 2020 cover an impressive span of time: from the very beginning of our universe until the very end.
A recent observation of an extremely rare subatomic process allows scientists to test the Standard Model’s boundaries.
Not all scientific claims are equal. How can you tell if a discovery is real?
