Here’s how physicists calculate g-2, the value that will determine whether the muon is giving us a sign of new physics.
Rubin Observatory will bring new capabilities to the studies of dark matter and dark energy.
An art exhibit at the Science Gallery Dublin combines art and science to illuminate the invisible nature of dark matter.
The LUX-ZEPLIN collaboration has published results showing radioactive background levels for experiment’s components, creating a library for future rare event searches.
The “Snowmass” process seeks to identify the most promising questions to explore in future research.
Extremely massive fundamental particles could exist, but they would seriously mess with our understanding of quantum mechanics.
Handedness—and the related concept of chirality—are double-sided ways of understanding how matter breaks symmetries.
Particle accelerators like the LHC require intricate beam dump systems to safely dispose of high-energy particles after each run.
In this stop-motion video, Symmetry writer Zack Savitsky imagines an artist whose supplies have taken on some of the properties of neutrinos.
Humans and robots work together in a carefully choreographed dance for the Mu2e experiment.
Sensors for the world’s largest digital camera have snapped their first 3200-megapixel images at SLAC.
Astrophysicists are combining multiple methods to reveal the secrets of some of the weirdest objects in the universe.
