God particle: The Higgs boson isn't just any particle. It's the linchpin of the Standard Model of particle physics theory that explains the Big Bang, because it is believed to answer a fundamental question about why matter has mass.
Muoy You has opened Seametrey Children's Village in Phnom Penh to help restore Cambodia's culture.
Scientists at the world's largest particle physics laboratory in Switzerland have found a way to contain antimatter atoms in a magnetic 'bottle' for as long as 1,000 seconds, an eternity in particle physics.
The Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) is pulling the plug on the Tevatron, the only American particle collider capable of finding the Higgs boson, or 'God particle.'
Antimatter research took a significant step forward when scientists for the first time created and briefly corraled antihydrogen. The experiment could help scientists probe why the universe has less antimatter than prevailing theories suggest it should.
Large Hadron Collider: Scientists are proposing a particle accelerator that is even bigger than the mammoth Large Hadron Collider.
A woman holds her sleeping baby during South African President Jacob Zuma's visit to a settlement for poor whites in Pretoria on March 30. While most white South Africans still enjoy lives of privilege and wealth, the number of poor whites has risen steadily over the past 15 years, with white unemployment nearly doubled between 1995 and 2005, according to the South African Institute for Security Studies.
CERN scientists are today successfully crashing particles together at nearly the speed of light. With such high-speed collisions, they hope to finally detect the elusive Higgs boson.
Years in development, the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva on Tuesday achieved its first proton-on-proton collisions at higher energy levels than scientists have ever seen before. They'll study images of the particles for clues to the nature of matter and the universe.
