I have argued elsewhere that the peak moment for physics was actually the mid-'70s. Here we had the taming of the particle ...
The Higgs boson has captured the imagination of the public, worldwide. Why? The answer is fundamental to the human race, a feature that sets humans apart from other living species: our curiosity and ...
There are three subatomic particles. They are the proton, the neutron, and the electron. We find the protons and neutrons in the nucleus of the atom while the electrons orbit the nucleus. The ...
The pentaquark, a particle that eluded physicists for decades before finally being discovered in 2015, is starting to give up its secrets. New data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland ...
In his second life he pioneered the study of complexity, probing the behavior of systems ranging from economics to the weather, too complicated for the reductionist methods of particle physics. ...
Apart from the big fish — CP violation — the experiment also looks for differences in the physics of muons, electrons and the relatively heavier tau particles Belle II, a particle accelerator ...
"But our finding is still just as scientifically significant because it strengthens the Standard Model of particle physics and excludes alternative models." The Standard Model (SM) of particle physics ...
Paul Sutter is an astrophysicist at The Ohio State University and the chief scientist at COSI science center. Sutter is also host of "Ask a Spaceman" and "Space Radio," and leads AstroTours around the ...
A single subatomic particle detected at the South Pole last September is helping to solve a major cosmic mystery: what creates electrically charged cosmic rays, the most energetic particles in nature. ...
Researchers install detectors inside the queen's chamber within Khufu's Great Pyramid at Giza. The Grand Gallery, a tall room in Khufu's Pyramid. The discovered space is located above this room. A ...
In November of 2014, in a first, unexpected move for the field of particle physics, the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment—one of the main detectors in the world's largest particle accelerator, ...
WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists have found an extra charming new subatomic particle that they hope will help further explain a key force that binds matter together. Physicists at the Large Hadron ...
