Bump Watch 2016

A bump in the LHC data has physicists electrified…but what does it mean?


SuperKEKB reborn

The Japanese accelerator takes its first steps toward resuming its hunt for the universe’s missing antimatter.


LHC ends 2015 with a cliffhanger

Two LHC experiments see an unexpected bump, but scientists need more data to figure out whether it's worth getting excited about.


Holometer rules out first theory of space-time correlations

The extremely sensitive quantum-spacetime-measuring tool will serve as a template for continuing scientific exploration.


A measurement to watch

Finding a small discrepancy in measurements of the properties of neutrinos could show us how they fit into the bigger picture.


20-ton magnet heads to New York

A superconducting magnet begins its journey from SLAC laboratory in California to Brookhaven Lab in New York.


Creating a spark

Science has a long history of creativity generated through collaboration between fields.


Scientists set aside rivalry to preserve knowledge

Scientists from two experiments have banded together to create a single comprehensive record of their work for scientific posterity.


Physicist shares do-it-yourself expertise online

SLAC scientist Michael Kelsey sees connections between the communities of physicists and do-it-yourselfers.


The supersymmetric bet

Particle physicists playfully take sides over whether the Large Hadron Collider is likely to discover evidence of Supersymmetry.


Proposed plan for the future of US particle physics

The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel’s report recommends a strategic path forward for US particle physics.


Coming soon: Plan for the future of US particle physics

BaBar still breaking new ground

Twenty years after a cutting-edge particle physics experiment at SLAC adopted a royal elephant from a series of children’s books as its mascot, BaBar (the experiment, not the elephant) is still looking ahead to future discoveries.


Quarks in the looking glass

A recent experiment at Jefferson Lab probed the mirror symmetry of quarks, determining that one of their intrinsic properties is non-zero—as predicted by the Standard Model.


Quantum entanglement

Through ‘spooky action at a distance,’ the properties of two systems remain correlated even after they are separated.


Physicists look toward the high-energy horizon

A panel met at Brookhaven National Laboratory to chart the course for US investment in particle physics experiments.
