Particle accelerators, usually the size of small cities, accelerate electrons to immense speeds using electric fields, producing X-rays.
In a newly upgraded Large Hadron Collider that's more powerful than ever, scientists have spotted exotic combinations of tiny particles known as quarks.
Scientists have searched for the tiny fundamental particles for years, and they may hold clues to some of the biggest questions in physics.
The proposed accelerator will reside in an underground tunnel with a circumference of 62 miles. This is significantly bigger than the 17-mile structure that houses the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)—the current largest and most powerful accelerator in the world.
If this particle really exists, then it is not just outside the standard model but outside it in a way that nobody anticipated.
Particle accelerators speed up elementary bits of matter to probe fundamental questions in physics, however, current facilities require huge amounts of space.
Antimatter and matter should have completely annihilated each other in the Big Bang, leaving nothing but energy.
Klystrons are powerful generators for creating the electromagnetic fields that accelerate particles within atom smashers.
In a collaboration with Ars Electronica, the space agency will host an arts and science residency.
The discovery solves a 50-year-old puzzle about the building blocks of matter.
Evidence consistent with the Standard Model is "a great triumph" but also disappointing.
Scientist working on CERN's groundbreaking experiment says the particle accelerator will chart new territory.
Scientists aim to use the powerful particle collider to take physics beyond what we know.
CERN researchers published a press release about finding the Force. That's a capital F.
