Visit the first website ever! World Wide Web 20 years old today

Twenty years ago, something happened at CERN: Tim Berners-Lee handed a document to his supervisor Mike Sendall entitled "Information Management : a Proposal". The following year, the World Wide Web was born. Now you can revisit the first website ever!

CERN says latest data analysis confirms Higgs boson find

After last summer's announcement that they may have discovered the Higgs boson popularly called the "God particle," CERN physicists announced Thursday that the latest results of data analysis confirm they have found the Higgs boson.

Zombie doomsday at CERN: Low-budget horror movie 'Decay' released

While stressing that the film has not been authorized or endorsed by CERN, students have released "Decay", a zombie doomsday scenario film, sparked by the Large Hydron Collider and search for the Higgs Boson.

Signal in LHC may not be standard model Higgs boson after all

A new paper by Ian Low and colleagues at Cornell University casts doubt on the identity of the particle CERN scientists announced as consistent with the "standard model Higgs boson." The study says the particle may not be the standard Higgs after all.

Higgs, 83, sheds tears as discovery of Higgs boson is announced

Geneva - Retired British physicist Peter Higgs, who first proposed the Higgs boson in 1964, and after whom the particle was named, has congratulated the CERN team that found the new particle described as "consistent" with the Higgs boson.

Op-Ed: Why is ‘science’ so scared of FTL claims? OPERA raises questions

Sydney - Scientists were lining up from around the world to disprove the OPERA readings of FTL neutrinos. While these findings may not have been accurate, the fact remains that physics is obsessively negative regarding FTL or anything resembling FTL phenomena.

Op-Ed: None so blind as those who refuse to think — FTL neutrinos, again

Sydney - The continuing saga of “did, didn’t” in establishing faster than light speeds for subatomic particles called neutrinos continues. The worship of a 100 year old theory based on Newton continues unabated, as evidence to the contrary goes begging.

Hints of 'God Particle' found by CERN scientists & researchers

Geneva - Originally meant to be built in Waxahachie, Texas, under the nickname of Desertron, Switzerland-France's CERN states it has seen "tantalizing hints" of the elusive Higgs boson, also called the "God particle," in two of their experiments.

CERN scientists say they are closing in on the 'God particle'

Geneva - Amid rumors that physicists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have detected the first signs of the elusive Higgs boson popularly called the "God particle," the organization has released a statement that researchers have made "significant progress."

Scientific team refutes faster than light neutrino experiment

After physicists in the OPERA experiment said they had obtained results which confirm previous test results that neutrinos travel faster than light, another team in the ICARUS experiment have said results from their study contradict the OPERA experiment.

'Opera' experiment rerun confirms neutrinos are faster than light

Geneva - Physicists at CERN have rerun tests conducted in September which suggested that neutrinos travel faster than light. The latest results are consistent with those of the first received with skepticism after faults were found in the experiment design.

Scientists trap antimatter long enough for study

Geneva - CERN reported the ALPHA experiment successfully isolated and detained more than 300 antimatter atoms for over 16 minutes, just long enough for these elusive particles to relax and settle down, so scientists can begin to get to know them much better.

LHC matter dethrones neutron star as super-dense king

Scientists announced this week that they have found the densest form of matter in the known universe. This exotic material may be the parent of all known matter.

Large Hadron Collider will run in 2012, says CERN

CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Geneva, just announced that the LHC will run until the end of 2012, except for a short technical stop at the end of 2011.

Antimatter successfully captured and stored

In what may be one of the most important historical scientific achievements in physics, scientists from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland have successfully isolated anti-hydrogen atoms.

CERN web site explains the science in Angels & Demons

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, and its particle physics laboratory were at the center of the plot in the latest movie directed by Ron Howard, Angels & Demons. CERN responds to public questions about antimatter and more.

A Single Connection Downed The Large Hadron Collider

A single bad connection was the cause behind the world's largest atom smasher to be sidelined. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN was shut down just days after it opened with huge fanfare.

Op-Ed: Still Waiting For The World To End...

Well, Wednesday is just about over. I've been waiting all day, you know, for a black hole to suck up the universe, but I guess today isn't the day earth, or "home" as I like to call it, meets its demise.

Some Scientists Fear The End Of The World Could Begin In Nine Days

In nine days the Large Hadron Collider will be switched on. Some scientists fear that will be the end of the world. They believe that the world's biggest experiment will create a black hole and swallow the Earth.
