Unprecedented neutrino discovery is a "Nobel Prize in the making"

By drilling a 1.5 mile hole deep into an Antarctic glacier, physicists working at the IceCube South Pole Observatory have captured 28 extraterrestrial neutrinos — those mysterious and extremely powerful subatomic particles that can pass straight through solid matter. Welcome to an entirely new age of astronomy. »11/22/13 12:45pm11/22/13 12:45pm

The Large Hadron Collider may soon prove supersymmetry theory is wrong

Supersymmetry holds that all the subatomic particles we know have counterparts that are almost exactly the same, only much, much heavier. But the Large Hadron Collider hasn't found any supersymmetric particles yet, and they're running out of places to hide. Will we have to come up with a new model for subatomics? »3/01/11 4:00pm3/01/11 4:00pm
