That mighty thud was CERN dropping 300TB of raw collider data to the Internet

That mighty thud was CERN dropping 300TB of raw collider data to the Internet The LHC has been generating huge amounts of data for release to the general public since its first successful run in 2010.Continuing this trend, CERN just put out another big chunk of data for public analysis, some 300TB of partially organized results from the LHC’s operations since 2014 (when they did their first big data dump).

Possible new particle from LHC has physicists cautiously excited

Possible new particle from LHC has physicists cautiously excited The signals indicate a new particle that, if real, exists completely outside the expectation of the Standard Model of Physics — you know, the model that the LHC itself helped to finally confirm just four years ago?It’s possible that with their massive particle collider, Eruope’s CERN will first prove the Standard Model, then destroy it soon after.

This week in space: dark matter, exoplanets, galactic superclusters, and a Dragon ” This week marks the 47th anniversary of the first moon landing.Do you know any moon landing denialists?

That possible new particle from the LHC was just a blip

That possible new particle from the LHC was just a blip “Every explanation of the 750 GeV excess needs a new particle,” commented Kansas University physicist Kyoungchul Kong, and a new particle in that range would require a departure from the Standard Model.” “No new particle announced at #ICHEP2016 today but that’s how science works,” tweeted Fermilab.

The Large Hadron Collider is running out of disk space

The Large Hadron Collider is running out of disk space The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has run into an unanticipated problem — it’s running out of disk space.When the collider was planned out, scientists expected that it would be running about a third of the time.
