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 ...

India Finally Joins CERN, 50 Years After Initial TIFR Ties

Almost two years after Pakistan, India too joined CERN as an associate member of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), which houses the world’s largest nuclear and particle physics laboratory in the world and known for operating the Large Hadron Collider, that has claimed to have found the elusive Higgs Boson in 2012 and won the Nobel the next ...

After Europe, US, Japan, It’s China’s Turn to Vie for Large Hadron Collider

With the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) achieving the so-called ultimate triumph in particle physics with its Higgs Boson experiment in 2012, China has jumped the bandwagon while Japan is piggy-backing the CERN. India has already dug the earth in Tamil Nadu for its Netrino underground venture. What’s coming forth is that Chinese scientists at the Institute of High ...

India to follow Pakistan, may become CERN member soon, says official

Months after Pakistan becoming a member of CERN, the world’s largest particle physics lab that claims to have cracked Higgs Boson in 2012 and went ot win a Nobel prize next year, India has woken up to the necessity of joining the prestious research outfit. “The government has approved India’s associate membership of CERN. But it will take about a ...

CERN Restarts Large Hadron Collider After 2 Years, What Next?

Two years after the shutdown of its epoch-making Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the God Particle hunt by CERN resumed on Sunday at 10:41 AM local time. The physics particle search tunnel was closed for refurbishment after it found the first instance of Higgs Boson particle, known as God’s Particle in popular parlance in 2012. With a proton beam back in ...

LHC experiments praised by others on Higgs boson

During the 50th session of “Rencontres de Moriond” in La Thuile Italy, ATLAS and CMS presented for the first time a combination of their results on the mass of the Higgs boson. The combined mass of the Higgs boson is mH = 125.09 ± 0.24 (0.21 stat. ± 0.11 syst.) GeV, which corresponds to a measurement precision of better than ...

CERN, Higgs Boson Fame, Now Ready for Second 3-Year Run

CERN, the premier institute known for its research on Higgs Boson or God Particle, and anti-matter will re-open its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) after shut-down since January 2013 for refurbishment as it has to go for its second three-year run. CERN’s LHC is the largest and most powerful particle accelerator in the world and the institute said the whole 27-km ...

CERN Opens LHC Experiments Data to Public, Higgs Boson Soon?

CERN on Thursday uploaded data from its experiments at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for the first time making it openly available to all. Its Open Data Portal where data from real collision events is uploaded is expected to be of high value for the research community, and also be used for education purposes. While it is the first experiments of 2010, ...

God’s Particle or Future energy source for the entire mankind?

CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson CERN, the Geneva-based European Organization for Nuclear Research, will soon turn into a Mecca for the world physicists with its pathbreaking research into confirming that there exists a new particle in the mass region around 125-126 GeV, which is scientifically known as Higgs Boson but for commoners the “God’s Particle” narrated ...
