Particle Physics & Astrophysics
To learn more about the particles they collide, physicists turn their attention to a less destructive type of collision in the LHC.
Scientists don’t yet know what dark matter is made of, but they are full of ideas.
Matter and antimatter behave differently. Scientists hope that investigating how might someday explain why we exist.
It’s not easy being clean.
New technology and new thinking are pushing the dark matter hunt to lower and lower masses.
Not only are we made of fundamental particles, we also produce them and are constantly bombarded by them throughout the day.
Physicists are already preparing upgrades that will increase the physics reach of the Large Hadron Collider in the next decade.
