  • Rare tiny neutrinos may have huge implications for astronomy

    Rare tiny neutrinos may have huge implications for astronomy
    Together, they contain a tiny fraction of the mass of a single electron. But the 28 neutrinos from deep space detected by an icy observatory beneath the South Pole promise a revolution in the study of the universe, scientists said Thursday. The...
  • 'Neutrino' author gets a big bang out of a really small thing

     'Neutrino' author gets a big bang out of a really small thing
    Sheldon Cooper, top nerd on "The Big Bang," jokes about neutrinos. So did John Updike in the witty short poem "Cosmic Gall," printed in 1960 in the New Yorker. But Canadian astrophysicist Ray Jayawardhana suggests we take them seriously indeed in...
  • What exactly is a Higgs boson? An explanation for the rest of us

    If you’ve heard the news about the Nobel Prize in physics, you might be asking yourself: What is a  Higgs boson anyway? If you know one thing about the Higgs boson, it’s probably that it’s called the “God particle.” Leon...
  • Physicists say they've found evidence of 'God particle'

    Physicists say they've found evidence of 'God particle'
    To cheers and standing ovations from scientists, the world's biggest atom smasher claimed the discovery of a new subatomic particle Wednesday, calling it "consistent" with the long-sought Higgs boson -- popularly known as the "God particle" -- that...

    Gerson Goldhaber dies at 86; particle physicist discovered 'dark energy'
    Gerson Goldhaber, a UC Berkeley physicist who played a key role in identifying some of the fundamental particles of nature, then switched careers and helped show that the universe is expanding rather than contracting, died of natural causes at his home in...

    Maurice Goldhaber dies at 100; noted nuclear and particle physicist
    Maurice Goldhaber, one of the pioneers of modern physics whose experiments helped create the current understanding of how the world works, died May 11 at his home on Long Island, N.Y., after a short illness. He had celebrated his 100th birthday less...
  • So close to the God particle: Scientists say 'stay tuned'

     
    Physicists have detected hints of the long-sought Higgs boson but have not yet amassed enough data for definitive proof of discovery of the so-called God particle, scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, said Tuesda...
  • New atom-smasher generates hope, fear

    Michelangelo L. Mangano, a respected particle physicist who helped discover the top quark in 1995, now spends most days trying to convince people that his new machine won't destroy the world. "If it were just crackpots, we could wave them away," the...
  • Large Hadron Collider rewards scientists watching at Caltech

    Large Hadron Collider rewards scientists watching at Caltech
    The Large Hadron Collider near Geneva succeeded early Tuesday in smashing subatomic particles together at more than three times the highest levels previously recorded, eliciting cheers from a crowd watching at Caltech and pushing two sometimes-separate...
