World’s largest particle accelerator fails to pick up evidence of paranormal activity.
As the Large Hadron Collider prepares to start another round of particle-smashing experiments, a fresh wave of conspiracy theorists is growing. CERN addresses some of those fears in its “Surreal FAQ.”
The Standard Model has dictated how we view matter and particles for decades. However, a recently-published paper from Polish physicists at CERN presents potential evidence against it.
[DIGEST: Digital Journal, Science Daily, Nature Physics] We all agree, past events can affect the present. And present events can affect the future. But few would credibly argue that future events can affect the past. That might all change soon. Welcome to the world of quantum physics. To the average person, the observable, classical world … Continued
A bunch of protons walk into a bar. One turns to the others and says, “Is it just me or are we all on the verge of a breakdown?” Protons are once again breaking down in the name of scientific discovery. In early April, preliminary test runs of the retooled Large Hadron Collider (LHC) began … Continued
The staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes. If successful a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy … Continued
