Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
Particle colliders have a huge, seldom discussed problem when trying to record experimental data. Solving it could help us find ground breaking new physics and give us a more reliable internet.
Particle colliders seem like an ideal example of esoteric, purely curiosity-driven science. But we’ve actually been enjoying the fruits of their discoveries for decades now.
The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider may have reached temperatures at which matter itself begins to melt, and found a peek at new insights into the future of computing.
A supercollider-induced doomsday has been cancelled for the same reason as the previous one, and the one before that.
The jury is still out on whether the Large Hadron Collider can create a micro black hole and whether it can live long enough to be detected.
Scientists are already talking about the next generation of colliders which will smash matter and antimatter particles on a regular basis.
