Magnets and lasers have been used in combination to force atoms to fuse as scientists chase a viable fusion reactor to provide limitless clean energy.
If scientists can crack it, fusion offers a clean, powerful and virtually limitless source of energy that is safer than current nuclear power plants.
The powerful particles could be used to scan buildings for threats or map underground tunnels from above.
A discrepancy in the observed versus the predicted mass of fundamental particles called W bosons "could open a door to a whole new subatomic world."
The team transmitted information using fast neutrons produced in the decay of radioactive material. The system could be useful in situations where electromagnetic radiation is blocked.
The "sterile neutrino" appears not to exist, meaning scientists are back to the drawing board on some of the most fundamental mysteries of the universe.
Astronomer Carl Sagan once famously said "we are all made of star-stuff" but until now the origins of heavier elements have remained a mystery.
Researchers say the anomalies recorded in Antarctica may be the result of cosmic rays being reflected back after hitting subsurface features.
The technique could have significant implications for researchers investigating the world at the nanosocale.
"We want to deploy our resources and competences to contribute to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic," CERN Director-General Fabiola Gianotti said.
Researchers were looking to see if part of the Standard Model of physics would hold up under extreme conditions.
Scientists say d-star hexaquarks may have formed dark matter after the Big Bang.
"It's always exciting to set a world record," Tongcang Li from Purdue University said.
A recent experiment with atomic nuclei is hard to square with our current understanding of physics.
Researchers detected gravitational waves—ripples in space-time—emanating from a cataclysmic event around 900 million light years away.
Dark matter is mysterious substance that appears to make up about 27 percent of the universe's mass.
IceCube searches for neutrinos—invisible, nearly massless subatomic particles which rarely ever interact with normal matter.
There are three different physical processes responsible for accelerating particles to vast speeds.
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.
The findings have significant implications for the field of physics.
The search is on for an elusive particle that could shine a light on the "dark sector"—the vast majority of the universe that we cannot see.
Scientists at CERN observed Higgs boson decaying into subatomic particles called bottom quarks.
Particle accelerators speed up elementary bits of matter to probe fundamental questions in physics, however, current facilities require huge amounts of space.
The object can make about 60 billion rotations per second.
The detection of a single neutrino has opened up a whole new branch of astronomy.
The matter will be cooled to just above absolute zero, or minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit.
