Explore the elementary particles that make up our universe.
Take a tour of one of the most important rooms at CERN.
Physicists and other scientists use the GEANT4 toolkit to identify problems before they occur.
More than 150 US universities and laboratories are engaged in particle physics research and technology innovation, playing important roles in the Higgs boson and cosmic inflation discoveries—and the many more revelations still to come.
The search for the Higgs at experiments at the Large Hadron Collider was an international effort involving thousands of people, with physicists and engineers from US institutions playing a significant role throughout.
Chart a course to knowledge with symmetry’s interactive map of all 17 US Department of Energy national laboratories.
What’s the next step in particle colliders? Symmetry takes a trip into the kitchen pantry to find out.
The Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment aims to discover whether neutrinos violate the fundamental matter–antimatter symmetry of physics.
Neutrinos are elusive particles that are difficult to study, yet they may help explain some of the biggest mysteries of our universe. Using accelerators to make neutrino beams, scientists are unveiling the neutrinos’ secrets.
Big science takes both big data and big cooperation. For the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, storing, analyzing and accessing 25 petabytes of data each year requires a worldwide effort that spans more than 100 institutions in 36 countries. Here’s how it works.
