particle physics

Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Maxwell's equations we talk to physicist John Ellis about what they mean for modern technology and our understanding of the Universe.

Have physicists at CERN found a new Higgs boson?

CERN's Large Hadron Collider is one of the few scientific experiments to sparked wide-spread media coverage, particularly with the 2012 announcement of the discovery of the long-sought Higgs boson. So what really goes on at CERN and why the hubbub about the Large Hadron Collider, known as the LHC?

Find out all about the Large Hadron Collider in this package of introductory articles.

A bump in the data from the LHC promises exciting news.

What are the mysteries that still remain in particle physics?

Latest observations hint towards new particles.

It's amazing to think that our world is based on a handful of fundamental particles and forces. Find out how it all fits together.

There are many theories in particle physics that cannot be tested in experiments. Does this make it unscientific? This debate, featuring one of our favourite theoretical physicists, David Tong, explores the question.
