In a recently released paper released, the LHCb collaboration announced the discovery of a new system of five particles all in a single analysis. The exceptionality of this discovery is that observing five new states all at once is a rather unique event.
First public data released by the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program
The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe have teamed up to take a “cosmic census" that is looking for clues about the fate of the universe.
The race is on to build the most sensitive U.S.-based experiment designed to directly detect dark matter particles. This February Department of Energy officials formally approved a key construction milestone that will propel the project toward its April 2020 goal for completion.
Of all of the known subatomic forces, the weak force is in many ways unique. One particularly interesting facet is that the force differentiates between a particle that is rotating clockwise and counterclockwise. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln describes this unusual property and introduces some of the historical figures who played a role in working it all out.
ALPHA experiment observes the light spectrum of antimatter for the first time
The ALPHA collaboration has reported, for the first ever, measurements of the optical spectrum of an antimatter atom.
Exploring the matter that filled the early universe
Take a virtual tour of the STAR detector at the Brookhaven National Laboratory's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Through the RHIC experimenters and theorists are aiming to recreate matter as it existed in the very early universe.
