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.
A recent report underscores the importance of energy consumption and cost to decisions about future large-scale particle accelerator projects.
A physicist, a composer and a creative technician team up to translate the unseen particles around us into a format that human bodies can understand.
This year’s list includes a book about an eminent physicist striving to avoid fame, two unique books for children, and a book with equations you'll actually be able to read.
For the first time, physicists have a statistically significant measurement of the joint polarization of W and Z bosons.
LSST Camera images provide the inspiration for artist Lennart Lahuis’s “Astromelancholia.”
Laza Rakotondravohitra was the first Malagasy grad student to conduct research in neutrino physics. He and others are working to ensure he will be far from the last.
Scientists discuss the challenges of being caregivers in physics and some ways they’ve seen the field change for the better.
Threats of scorching heat, walls of tumbleweed, and countless critters mean innovation is a must for the facilities manager for LIGO Hanford Observatory.
Despite challenges, some physics faculty at predominantly undergraduate institutions make research experiences available to students.
With CMB-S4, scientists hope to connect a sandy desert with a polar desert—and revolutionize our understanding of the early universe.
Collaborators on the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument breathe a sigh of relief as they successfully restart the state-of-the-art experiment.
The powerful camera built for the Dark Energy Survey has taken more than 1 million photos from its perch in Chile. Here are some of the best.
Cameo Lance spoke at an American Physical Society meeting about her winding path from an undergraduate degree in physics to the space industry.
After the successful initiation of two new detectors, scientists have begun to envision an expanded suite of neutrino experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.
