Looking for nothing to test gravity

When they look for violations of Einstein’s general relativity, physicists deliberately plan experiments to find nothing at all.


The facts and nothing but the facts

At a recent workshop on blind analysis, researchers discussed how to keep their expectations out of their results.


A new search to watch from LHCb

A new result from the LHCb experiment could be an early indicator of an inconsistency in the Standard Model.


How to make a discovery

Particle physics is a dance between theory and experiment.


LHCb observes rare decay

Standard Model predictions align with the LHCb experiment’s observation of an uncommon decay.


The secret lives of long-lived particles

A theoretical species of particle might answer nearly every question about our cosmos—if scientists can find it.


Winners declared in SUSY bet

Physicists exchanged cognac in Copenhagen at the conclusion of a bet about supersymmetry and the LHC.


LHC bump fades with more data

Possible signs of new particle seem to have washed out in an influx of new data.
