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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...
