The question may seem simple, but physicists don’t yet know the answer. New measurements aim to change that.
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.
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.
Taking place on Twitter and in webinars, #BlackInPhysics week features events geared toward Black physicists, the entire physics community and the general public.
The “Snowmass” process seeks to identify the most promising questions to explore in future research.
