Only 1% of the mass of the proton comes from the Higgs field. ALICE scientists examine a process that could help explain the rest.
In their quest to discover physics beyond the Standard Model, physicists weigh the pros and cons of different search strategies.
A re-examination of a particle discovered in 2015 has scientists debating its true identity.
Quantum entanglement, doubted by Einstein, has passed increasingly stringent tests.
The bottom quark may lead physicists on a path to new discoveries.
When they look for violations of Einstein’s general relativity, physicists deliberately plan experiments to find nothing at all.
At a recent workshop on blind analysis, researchers discussed how to keep their expectations out of their results.
A new result from the LHCb experiment could be an early indicator of an inconsistency in the Standard Model.
Particle physics is a dance between theory and experiment.
Standard Model predictions align with the LHCb experiment’s observation of an uncommon decay.
Scientists furthered studies of the Higgs boson, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy and cosmic inflation and continued the search for undiscovered particles, forces and principles.
A theoretical species of particle might answer nearly every question about our cosmos—if scientists can find it.
Physicists exchanged cognac in Copenhagen at the conclusion of a bet about supersymmetry and the LHC.
Possible signs of new particle seem to have washed out in an influx of new data.
A result from an experiment in Hungary catches the attention of a group of theorists in the United States.
Researchers found four new particles made of the same four building blocks.
