how fixing particle colliders’ discarded data problem could bring us a better internet

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.

world of weird things podcast: why we need particle colliders

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.

strange matter, doomsday and you

A supercollider-induced doomsday has been cancelled for the same reason as the previous one, and the one before that.

the micro black hole dilemma, revisited

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.

supercollider? i just met her!

Scientists are already talking about the next generation of colliders which will smash matter and antimatter particles on a regular basis.
