That’s the rumor, anyway. Here’s Peter Woit of Columbia University: This morning’s rumors are a 3.5 sigma 126 GeV excess at ATLAS in the ATLAS-only combination, and 2.5 sigma at 124 GeV for CMS. Heuer’s message to all CERN personnel … Continue reading
The Higgs boson, the hypothesized “God particle,” is, according to the Standard Model of physics, why there is mass in the universe. And, in the Los Angeles Times today, physicist Robert Cousins offers a super-clear explanation for why scientists are working … Continue reading
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
In case you were wondering about it:
The New York Times today provides an interesting “history-in-a-nutshell” perspective on the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC): Particle colliders get their magic from Einstein’s equation of mass and energy. The more energy that these machines can pack into their little … Continue reading
After a year of being down for repairs, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is starting to, like, smash protons together again. According to the AP today: The aim is to hurl protons into each other at close to the speed … Continue reading
In an interview with Alan Gillis, Otto Rossler, a Max Plank Institute chemist and physicist with 300 scientific papers to his credit, thinks the Large Hadron Collider could destroy the Earth. Here he describes his visit to CERN this summer: Alan … Continue reading
Skeptic magazine recently had a rather thorough (and I thought disturbing) article on the Large Hadron Collider and scientific opinion concerning its safety. Here’s a quote from the article: [I]n a recent version of the safety of the LHC posted … Continue reading
In reading my most recent dead tree edition of Skeptic magazine, I noticed that there were two articles on the Large Hadron Collider and the potential catastrophic effects that could come from bringing it up to full power (black holes eating the Earth, etc). … Continue reading
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
