What really happened right after the Big Bang?
When it comes to the Big Bang, you shouldn't believe everything you hear. In this week's "Ask a Physicist," we ask whether hyperinflation of the entire universe is sensible or just plain nuts.
CERN LHC Found an Extra Dimension
They found the god particle. And using Gravity's rainbow theory they are currently still analyzing data to confirm, but the scientists at CERN LHC believe TH...
Large Hadron Collider nearly ready
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France, is nearly set to begin its first particle beam tests. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is preparing for its first small tests in early August, leading to a planned full-track test in September - and the first planned particle collisions before the end of the year. The final step before starting is the chilling of the entire collider to…

How the Large Hadron Collider Will Bring the Internet to Everything
THE INTERNET OF THINGS Open Garden Image: CERN When the Large Hadron Collider went online in 2009, most scientists saw it as an unprecedented opportunity to conduct experiments involving the building blocks of the physical world. But to Stanislav Shalunov, a networking engineer, it looked like a whole new kind of Big Data problem. A […]
