It’s a discovery that has everyone excited.
In about three years from now, the LHC will receive its most powerful linear accelerator yet.
We just can’t seem to determine exactly how tiny they are.
Imagine a nugget of real, 20 carat gold floating merrily on the milk foam of your cup of warm cappuccino — scientists from ETH Zurich have found a way to do it. It’s not super-cappuccino, or diamond-strong foam — scientists led by Raffaele Mezzenga, Professor of Food and Soft Materials at ETH have produced a novel foam of gold, a three-dimensional material that is actually mostly…empty.
We see light every day, and yet, we don’t truly understand it; it’s either a particle or a wave, or both at the same time… and we don’t really know why. Now, for the first time, researchers have captured an image of light behaving as a particle and a wave at the same time.
Despite several setbacks and technical difficulties, the Large Hadrdon Collider is already starting to live up to it’s nickname, the Big Bang machine. Researchers have pinpointed what may very well be the dense, hot state state of matter that is believed to have filled the Universe during its first nanoseconds. Generally speaking, quarks are bound together in groups of two
“It’s a great day to be a particle physicist,” said CERN director general Rolf Heuer. “A lot of people have waited a long time for this moment.” The LHC had been going on a promising streak for quite a while now; however, the encountered problems (mostly engineering, but also physics) were huge. Imagine firing arrows on the face of the
Well, the talk is on homeopathy, but this is really not about homeopathy. It’s about the “physics” explanation, and how it manages to be so absurd that it basically urinates on pretty much modern science in just 5 minutes (which is quite an achievement, truth be told). With no disrespect, how she got the “Dr.” title is beyond me, and
Since the Large Hadron Collider went back in business, all sort of rumors have been circling the scientific circles (and not only). However, until these rumors are proven wrong or right, the first official paper on proton collisions from the Large Hadron Collider has been published in this week’s edition of Springer’s European Physical Journal C. . Designed to reach
The researchers and engineers operating the Large Hadron Collider have smashed together for the first time protons, in what is considered a huge step forward by pretty much everybody working at the huge physics experiment. The particles were accelerated on Monday, through the LHC’s 27 km and then ‘drove’ into each other, in an attempt to recreate the conditions that
We’ve all heard stories about soviet scientists, and Hollywood played quite an important role in that. Really few of those stories are actually true, but here’s one that will probably baffle you; it did this to Russian physicists and doctors. First of all, it has to be said that by the time the USSR divided, they had created more than
