Short Circuit Delays CERN’s Hunt for Dark Matter Indefinitely

In a rare occurrence of a short-circuit, CERN has delayed its much-anticipated re-start of the world’s largest proton smasher indefinitely. The particle-hunting Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was cooled in the last two years to double its energy and was planned for a re-start on Monday but the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) said on Wednesday that the error found ...

CERN to Resume LHC Operation with Doubled Energy Today

CERN, which was able to produce epoch-making anti-matter or God’s Particle will resume its operations with its new refurbished Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on Monday, March 23, 2015 after a gap of over two years for maintenance. The renovated LHC will now double its accelerator for running at a collision energy of 13 TeV, nearly double its last time energy ...

CERN All Set to Relaunch LHC for God Particle Second Run Experiments from March 23

CERN, the particle research giant in Geneva that had shut down in 2013 its epoch-making Large Hadron Collider which was able to produce the dark matter or God’s Particle, has announced new and reburbished LHC now. For almost three years the LHC has gone through maintenace with hundreds of engineers and technicians working on consolidating and strengthening the accelerator in ...

Mistake for India not to join CERN, says its new chief

Pakistan is joining CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) next month but India still not joining the world’s largest particle physics laboratory is a mistake, said its chief in Kolkata on the sidelines of a meet. The Pakistani government which has applied long ago will be issued a notification by next month on the country’s associate membership of the organisation, ...

CERN Follows NASA, Participates in Reddit Open Discussion

CERN took the route of NASA in reaching out to the public as its scientists participated in an open discussion on Reddit recently, called “Open Science, Open Data & More”. The two-hour “Ask Me Anything” session saw researchers from across CERN departments and experiments take questions about Open Science and the Open Data Portal that CERN launched last month. The ...
