  • LHC restart: 'We want to break physics'
    The Large Hadron Collider is gearing up for its revamped second run, and its physicists want this next round of collisions to shake their discipline to its core.
  • Playing physics: Student builds Lego Large Hadron Collider
    A particle physics student has used his downtime to build a Lego model of the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and is now lobbying the toy company to take it to market. Nathan Readioff's design uses existing Lego pieces to replicate all four elements of the LHC -- known as ATLAS, ALICE, CMS and LHCb -- and uses cutaway walls to reveal all of the major ...
  • Researchers looking to 'break physics' with LHC Run Two
    Brett Smith for - @ParkstBrett Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland have found through their experiments that theories surrounding particle physics have held up well so far – and that’s the problem. Just days away from restarting the LHC after a two-year break, CERN scientists are now saying that they want to use the newly-upgraded LHC to ‘break ...
  • Image Captures Light's Spooky Dual Nature for 1st Time
    This strange behavior is a consequence of quantum mechanics, bizarre rules of physics that govern the behavior of subatomic particles. "This experiment demonstrates that, for the first time ever, we can film quantum mechanics — and its paradoxical nature — directly," study co-author Fabrizio Carbone, a researcher at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, said in a statement.
  • Can Math Answer Absurd Questions?
    When Randall Munroe volunteered to teach physics to high schoolers, his textbook approach to teaching the subject fell flat. Then he realized a way to get the kids excited about math -- Star Wars.
  • Infinity Is a Beautiful Concept – And It's Ruining Physics
    I was seduced by infinity at an early age. Georg Cantor’s diagonality proof that some infinities are bigger than others mesmerized me, and his infinite hierarchy of infinities blew my mind. The assumption that something truly infinite exists in nature underlies every physics course I’ve ever taught at MIT—and, indeed, all of modern physics. But it’s an untested assumption, which begs the ...
  • 'Physics for Rock Stars' Lecture Tonight
    Interested in learning a thing or two about physics? CSI is hosting a "Physics for Rock Stars" lecture by author Christine McKinley who wrote a book by the same title.
  • New physics building awaits funding
    If the capital outlay bill circulating the legislature is approved, UNM will receive $500,000 to complete design and planning of the Interdisciplinary Science Education Building that has been in the works for years. The new building is a necessity if the physics and astronomy department is going to continue competing effectively and creating viable research, said Wolfgang Rudolph, chair of the ...
  • Physics technician Hannah Miller suing Tonbridge School after claiming she was told women should be in kitchen
    A physics technician is suing one of the country's top boarding schools after claiming she was told women "should stay at home in the kitchen".
