International team of physicists continues search for new physics

The Compact Muon Solenoid detector is a general-purpose detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland, designed to observe any new physics phenomena that the LHC might reveal.

Dark matter, which is thought to account for nearly a quarter of matter in the universe (but has yet to be observed), has perplexed physicists for decades. They're constantly looking for something surprising to show up in experiments—results that deviate from the standard model that defines elementary physics.It's no wonder

This Physicist’s Ideas Of Time Will Blow Your Mind

Physicist’s Ideas Of Time

Time feels real to people. But it doesn’t even exist, according to quantum physics. “There is no time variable in the fundamental equations that describe the world,” theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli tells Quartz.If you met him socially, Rovelli wouldn’t assault you with abstractions and math to prove this point.He’d “rather

Dark Energy Might Not Exist After All, Physicist Says

Dark Energy

Dark energy—the hypothetical force that scientists believe makes up the bulk of the universe and is driving its expansion—might not exist. Professor Subir Sarkar, a particle physicist at the U.K.’s University of Oxford, said that as we gather more evidence about the universe and its expansion, the case for dark
