Rolling in the Higgs

(YouTube link) Tim Blais wrote the geekiest-ever lyrics to the tune of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” It’s about CERN’s Large Hadron Collider and its mission to find the Higg-Boson subatomic particle. The lyrics are at the YouTube page and in an article about Blais’ A Capella Science project at Scientific AmericaN. Link -via Metafilter

Has the Higgs Boson finally been discovered?

Rumours in science circles suggest that a Higgs-Boson announcement may come very soon indeed. Physicists have been using the Large Hadron Collider to …

Sketches from Leonardo da Vinci’s Notebook: The Large Hadron Collider

You may already know about Leonardo da Vinci’s submarine design, or his sketches for helicopters, parachutes and airplanes. But you not have seen his plan for a compact muon solenoid detector, almost identical to the one now used by CERN in its Large Hadron Collider. That, at least, is the idea behind this drawing by [...]

Scientists reveal glimpse of ‘God particle’

Large Hadron Collider scientists have reported glimpsing the Higgs-boson particle for the first time. The findings were revealed at a seminar in Genev…

Scientists catch glimpse of "God particle"

The Large Hadron Collider has picked up fluctuations that could be from the elusive Higgs Boson particle. Scientists have however been quick to stress…

Has the God particle been found ?

Rumours are circulating that the Large Hadron Collider has actually found the God particle. The rumours are based on a leaked memo from physicists at …

LHC ‘has two years to find Higgs’

Scientists expect to find the Higgs boson particle via the Large Hadron Collider by the end of 2012. It is thought that if the particle is not found w…

LHC generates a ‘mini-Big Bang’

The Large Hadron Collider has succeeded in creating a “mini-Big Bang” by smashing lead ions together. During the experiment scientists created tempera…

Scientists at Large Hadron Collider Create "Mini Big Bang"

As a part of their ongoing efforts to destroy the universe, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva created a small version of the process that may have triggered the Big Bang. The experiment resulted in the highest temperature and densities ever created in a controlled setting. David Evans, one of the researchers, said: “We [...]

Hadron Collider to recreate Big Bang

Scientists are using the Large Hadron Collider to recreate the conditions following the Big Bang. Its a state of matter that hasn’t existed in the uni…
