When they look for violations of Einstein’s general relativity, physicists deliberately plan experiments to find nothing at all.
At a recent workshop on blind analysis, researchers discussed how to keep their expectations out of their results.
A new result from the LHCb experiment could be an early indicator of an inconsistency in the Standard Model.
Particle physics is a dance between theory and experiment.
Standard Model predictions align with the LHCb experiment’s observation of an uncommon decay.
A theoretical species of particle might answer nearly every question about our cosmos—if scientists can find it.
Physicists exchanged cognac in Copenhagen at the conclusion of a bet about supersymmetry and the LHC.
Possible signs of new particle seem to have washed out in an influx of new data.
