Photon science, a spin-off of particle physics, has returned to its roots for help developing better, faster detectors.
A determined volunteer gives an old detector new life as the centerpiece of a cosmic ray exhibit.
Efforts are already underway to ensure that the data the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope collects will be ready to be mined for scientific gold.
The 30-ton MicroBooNE detector, the cornerstone of Fermilab’s short-baseline neutrino program, will see neutrinos this year.
The Open Science Grid enables faster, more efficient analysis of LHC data—and also contributes to advancements in fields from geology to medicine.
A new result from the Large Hadron Collider strengthens the case that the Higgs interacts with both types of particles in the Standard Model.
