  1. Visualized: this is where the Higgs Boson was discovered

    It's not everyday you get to tour CERN , the international particle physics research facility that spans the border of both France and Switzerland. It's even more rare to go down into the sprawling facility's tunnels to see an inactive and under repair Large Hadron Collider -- currently, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. But that's just what we did this past week, as we spent some ...

  2. Smash Lego atoms with a Large Hadron Collider model

    This ATLAS mini model is gathering votes. (Credit: Sascha Mehlhase) Unfortunately, the Large Hadron Collider is too big to bring home and put on display in your living room. Scientist Sascha Mehlhase created a 4,500-piece Lego model of the collider back in 2011 at a cost of about $2,700. That was also too big for most people. Now, he has created a smaller model of the ATLAS experiment , a ...

  3. CERN replaces proprietary video conferencing system with Vidyo

    Tim Smith has some of the best IT end users in the world: the physicists who do research at CERN, which runs the particle physics lab that is home to the Large Hadron Collider, because they need little instruction when it comes to new technology.
