Only a fraction of collision events that look like they produce a Higgs boson actually produce a Higgs boson. Luckily, it doesn’t matter.
An extremely fast new detector inside the CMS detector will allow physicists to get a sharper image of particle collisions.
Symmetry chats with scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider to hear about differences between seven different rungs on the academic career ladder.
Reina Reyes made headlines for her research at Princeton testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity; now she’s home in the Philippines, using her physics background to make her mark in different ways.
A school invited physicists from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory to present their science for judgment by elementary students.
Although scientists have yet to find the spooky stuff, they aren’t completely in the dark.
Physicists deal with background in their experiments in two ways: by reducing it and by rejecting it.
When observed parameters seem like they must be finely tuned to fit a theory, some physicists accept it as coincidence. Others want to keep digging.
Science Storytellers brings together two groups of innately curious individuals: scientists and children.
As technology improves, scientists discover new ways to search for theorized dark matter particles called axions.
The first undergraduate on the Event Horizon Telescope to receive junior collaborator status thrives in the unknown.
To both understand the universe and improve equity, inclusion and diversity in physics, Brian Beckford looks to one word: respect.
A forthcoming upgrade to the IceCube detector will provide deeper insights into the elusive particles.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will be named for an influential astronomer who left the field better than she found it.
Particle physics might seem too complex for young children, but educators are finding enthusiasm and understanding even among the Sesame Street set.
Grab your cocoa or pumpkin spice—as today we examine what’s naughty and nice.
