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.
A result from an experiment in Hungary catches the attention of a group of theorists in the United States.
Researchers found four new particles made of the same four building blocks.
A bump in the LHC data has physicists electrified…but what does it mean?
The Japanese accelerator takes its first steps toward resuming its hunt for the universe’s missing antimatter.
Two LHC experiments see an unexpected bump, but scientists need more data to figure out whether it's worth getting excited about.
The extremely sensitive quantum-spacetime-measuring tool will serve as a template for continuing scientific exploration.
Finding a small discrepancy in measurements of the properties of neutrinos could show us how they fit into the bigger picture.
A superconducting magnet begins its journey from SLAC laboratory in California to Brookhaven Lab in New York.
