A bird’s eye view of the LHC (Credit: CERN) The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is by far the most powerful particle accelerator built to date. Following an upgrade, the LHC now operates at an energy that is 7 times higher than any previous machine! The LHC is based at the European particle physics laboratory CERN, near Geneva in Switzerland.

The greatest unsolved problem in theoretical physics ““Of course, there either could be a completely different solution to the hierarchy problem, or there may not be a solution at all;

Fabiola Gianotti - Italian particle physicis

Runner-Up: Fabiola Gianotti, the Discoverer

An Italian, Fabiola Gianotti, on Tuesday became the first woman to head the CERN particle-physics lab in Geneva. Gianotti, was one of the leaders of the team that discovered the Higgs boson, the long-sought building block of the universe.

At the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, two armies of physicists struggled to close in on the Higgs boson, the Great White Whale of modern science. Last year, the discovery of the particle credited with giving others mass was cheerfully announced to a packed and jubilant auditorium at CERN nea...

The 15 best things to do in Geneva

Scientists at CERN in Geneva have announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element Governmentium (Gv). It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons which are surrounded by vast quantities of right-on-like particles called peons.

Have students write a story based on an element. Have them use characteristics of their element in the story such as; atomic number, location and, mass.

DARK MATTER:Three years ago, scientists in Geneva, Switzerland, announced they had proved the existence of the so-called "God particle" known as Higgs boson -- a never-before-seen subatomic particle long thought to be a fundamental building block of the universe. This year, researchers from two different teams combined their measurements of the particle, providing an unprecedented picture of Higgs boson's production, decay and interaction with other particles.

Il bosone di Higgs | Jim Baggott - Adelphi Edizioni Tra i tanti oggetti pervasivi ed elusivi che affollano la dimensione invisibile del mondo subatomico, il "bosone di Higgs» è stato il più pervasivo ed elusivo: quella particella era l'elemento cruciale che mancava a completare il puzzle del Modello Standard, perché conferiva massa a tutte le altre particelle elementari, un enigma rimasto altrimenti insoluto. Quando finalmente il 4 luglio 2012 il CERN ne ha annunciato la verifica…

LHC back in business after two year hiatus: already breaks record

The blackhole machine also known as the Hadron Collider which was created in 1954 by 12 Western European countries is the worlds most expensive project, and has scientists, and religious groups alike a buzz over the project.
