Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Last Run Fails to Recreate 2012 Results

CERN on Monday ran for the last time the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle accelerator, housed underground near the France-Switzerland border near Geneva, which ran since May this year. It said the number of collisions recorded by the ATLAS and CMS detectors during the proton run was 60 percent higher than expected though the results of 2012 ...

Indian-Origin Astronomer Develops Unique Galacto-Seismic Method to Hunt Dark Matter Galaxies

Based on galactoseismology, Indian origin astronomer Sukanya Chakrabarti, former post-doc at Berkeley and her mentor Leo Blitz have found three bright pulsating stars on the periphery of the Milky Way galaxy which could be beacons from a dwarf, dark matter galaxy. Using supercomputer simulation of the collision of a dwarf and dark-matter galaxy over the course of the last billion ...

CERN Tests Large Hadron Collider at Record Energy to Break Protons, Achieves Breakthrough (Photos)

CERN achieved a breakthrough on Wednesday night when protons collided in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the record-breaking energy of 13 TeV for the first time, paving the way for the next round in early June in search of the dark matter or God’s particle. The set-up of the collimators, which absorb stray particles were adjusted in colliding-beam conditions ...

Dark Matter darker than previously thought, say astronomers

Using observations from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have found that dark matter does not slow down when colliding with itself, meaning it interacts with itself less than previously thought. This finding narrows down the options for what this mysterious substance might be. “Dark matter is an enigma we have long sought to unravel. With the ...

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 ...
