The International Linear Collider is a proposed new electron-positron collider. Together with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, it would allow physicists to explore energy regions beyond the reach of today's accelerators.
Extra dimensions sound like science fiction, but they could be part of the real world.
Waves describe some of the most extraordinary phenomena in the world. Waves can be simple—the sound of a flute playing a sustained, single note—or they can be complicated mixtures—a musical chord, for example, which is a combination of many sound waves.
The Large Hadron Collider is currently being installed in a 27-kilometer ring buried deep below the countryside on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland. When its operation begins in 2007, the LHC will be the worlds most powerful particle accelerator.
Supersymmetry is a proposed property of the universe.
Your car, and virtually all other activity on Earth, is ultimately powered by Einstein’s most famous equation.
Gravitational lenses distort light and help scientists study dark matter.
Antimatter is matter’s natural counterpart.
