The World's Biggest Physics Experiment Is About to Reboot 

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the most audacious physics experiment in human history. Now scientists are about to restart the giant particle collider for a new set of experiments. Last time, they did the almost-impossible and found the Higgs Boson. This time, they might find something even more exciting. »3/20/15 9:21am3/20/15 9:21am

6 Appalling Things I Would Do If I Ran Famous Scientific Institutions

Admit it — you've had mad science fantasies where you're put in charge of a multi-billion dollar scientific institution. Especially one that has destructive capability. I've always wanted to use a great scientific facility to do something appalling. Here are my six favorite ideas for twisting legendary scientific… »2/04/13 10:33am2/04/13 10:33am

Striking papercraft illustrations celebrate CERN and the Higgs Boson

As part of their 2012 retrospective, French newspaper Le Monde commissioned design studio Zim & Zou to create a series of papercraft illustrations as part of an article on CERN's advancements in seeking the Higgs Boson. The cover illustration gives us a lovely interpretation of particle collision based on the Large… »1/19/13 11:30am1/19/13 11:30am

Watch the entire Large Hadron Collider zombie movie—shot at CERN—online now

We were excited to hear about Decay, the movie filmed by physics PhD students at CERN's Large Hadron Collider facility. Now you can watch the entire 75-minute film on YouTube and see what happens when you give physicists a camera, some zombie makeup, and access to one of the world's top research facilities. »12/08/12 2:00pm12/08/12 2:00pm

Physics PhD students make a zombie movie at the Large Hadron Collider facility

Think you've seen every single twist on the zombie movie? Decay has something that no other zombie flick does: the Large Hadron Collider. A group of Physics PhD students filmed their horror movie against the photogenic particle accelerator, cooking up a Higgs Boson-driven plot about a physics experiment awry.
