Fermilab’s Tevatron collider officially retired in 2011 after a long and glorious history of scientific discovery. But the data from its final run is still yielding potentially exciting results. Physicists from the DZero collaboration have announced the discovery of a new particle, believed to be part of an exotic…
A controversial experiment at Fermilab designed to hunt for signs that our universe may really be a hologram has failed to find the evidence it was seeking, the laboratory has announced.
Author James Rollins has been compared to Michael Crichton, and his latest book The Eye of God includes biohacking, DIY mad science and other current ideas. In this essay, he talks about visiting Fermilab and explains the secrets of transforming science into a cracking good read.
While the Large Hadron Collider is looking for the Higgs boson, we're on the verge of two huge antimatter-related breakthroughs. One could finally solve the universe's oldest mystery, while the other could reveal strange new particles that are perfect for quantum computers.
When Fermilab's Tevatron came online in 1983, it was the most powerful particle accelerator in the world. Since then, the collider has made countless contributions to the field of particle physics — the most notable being its role in the 1995 discovery of the top quark, the last of the six quarks in the Standard Model…
Once again, there's excitement in the physics community about the possible discovery of the Higgs boson. But this time, it's multiple discoveries...both experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have detected some intriguing possibilities, as has Fermilab's Tevatron. What's going on?
One of the two research teams at Fermilab has been on the trail of a new subatomic particle for months, and they're almost certain they've found it. But the other research team has just checked the data...and they've found nothing.
Back in April, Fermilab physicists detected a strange bump in their data that couldn't be explained by any known particles. The mystery remains unsolved, and it's looking more and more likely that we're on the verge of a major discovery.
At 5:00 PM Eastern, Fermilab scientists will announce a major discovery. The early word is that this is not the Higgs boson, but instead something completely unexpected.
This massive camera is about to head to Chile on a five-year mission to find evidence of dark energy. And now, through the magic of time-lapse photography, you can watch as Fermilab technicians bring the future of science to life.
Last month rumors swirled that scientists at Fermilab's Tevatron particle accelerator found the Higgs Boson particle. Those reports were untrue, but we have made significant progress towards finding the elusive particle. Why is this such an important discovery?
