Amazing new discovery at CERNs Large Hadron Collider – #750GeV #diphoton

Whispers abound about the discovery of something new and quite unexpected at the Large Hadron Collider. The previous confirmation of the Higgs boson was truly amazing but they were looking for that and expected to find and confirm  it. The recent discovery (not by the LHC) of gravitational waves was also a huge scientific landmark, but … Read more


Well come on, its “The” news today, so what else should I be blogging about, but then what can I actually add? Not much, except perhaos to point you at a few good links. First we have Jon Butterworth in The Guardian. He is a physics professor at University College London and is a member … Read more

LHC reveals hints of ‘new physics’ in particle decays

There is a story on the BBC today that pushed my, “Oh thats cool” button. Jason Palmer, the BBC Science reporter, writes … Large Hadron Collider researchers have shown off what may be the facility’s first “new physics” outside our current understanding of the Universe. Particles called D-mesons seem to decay slightly differently from their … Read more

LHC – latest update

So how are the folks over at the LHC getting on? Quite well apparently … Since December, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been smashing particles together at record-setting energy levels. Physicists hope that those high-energy collisions could replicate the conditions seen immediately after the Big Bang, shedding light on how our universe came to … Read more
