Antimatter atoms trapped for first time

Scientists at CERN have succeeded for the first time in capturing and storing antimatter - albeit for only a fraction of a second. The team successfully created 38 hydrogen 'anti-atoms', and hung onto them long enough to study.

LHC back up and running to produce mini Big Bang

Just four days after shutting down the Large Hadron Collider's proton running experiments, CERN has completed the transition to lead-ion running and has recorded its first collisions.

LHC starts new set of experiments

The Large Hadron Collider is about to enter a new phase of operation, with proton running for this year concluding successfully this morning. For the rest of the year, lead ions will be accelerated and brought into collision in the machine for the first time.

Getting closer to God: LHC scientists zoom in on Higgs Boson

The first solid results are in from the Large Hadron Collider. And while the physicists say they haven't yet found the Higgs Boson - the so-called God particle - they have found strong supporting data for its existence.

LHC achieves record collisions, starts gathering data

The Large Hadron Collider is up and running, and has produced its first high-energy collisions.

LHC sets new speed record

The large Hadron Collider (LHC) has set a new record, accelerating particles to the highest speed yet.
