Big Bang Buzz: Is Some Huge CERN Hadron Collider News on the Way?

Physicists are excited. The Washington Post this week has a very brief article, absent details, suggesting that maybe the CERN Large Hadron Collider has started to pick the lock on the Big Bang and the so-called God Particle (the Higgs boson): … Continue reading

Curly Physics? Let the Big Banging Begin!

On Monday, the Large Hadron Collider started cracking little knuckleheads of protons into one another, and here’s what the New York Times says is the ramp up schedule for ever greater energy knock-about levels (ultimately leading to Big Bang equivelent energy collisions): … Continue reading

Brian Cox on the CERN Large Hadron Particle Collider

In September, 2008, the CERN Large Hadron Collider was slated to fully power up, but there were glitches that have stalled (until November of 2009) its search for the Higgs boson (the particle/field responsible for making mass, and thus matter, … Continue reading

In November of 2009, the CERN Large Hadron Collider Will Begin the Process of Replicating the First Billionth of a Second After the Big Bang

Yes, you read that right. Billionth of a second. The European particle collider will work, under controlled conditions, with energies literally billions of times hotter than the sun’s core, and most physicists think that the collider, at its highest speeds, may even generate … Continue reading
