Physicists announced Thursday they believe they have discovered the subatomic particle predicted nearly a half-century ago, which will go a long way toward explaining what gives electrons and all matter in the universe size and shape.

The world's largest and most powerful atom smasher goes into a 2-year hibernation in March, as engineers carry out a revamp to help it reach maximum energy levels that could lead to more stunning discoveries following the detection of the so-called "God particle."

Though the Mayans never really predicted that the world would end on Friday, some New Agers are convinced that humanity's demise is indeed imminent. Or at least that it's a good excuse for a party.

EUGENE, Ore. - Jake Searcy heard about an atom smasher under construction in Switzerland when he was in high school and thought, "How cool would that be?"

The University of Oregon graduate student from New Mexico spent 2 1/2 years in...

More scientists are getting closer in the search for the "God particle" of physics that would help explain the fundamentals of the universe, but they haven't found it yet.
Dec 13, 2011 at 8:32 AM
Scientists hunting for an elusive sub-atomic particle say they've found "intriguing hints" - but not definitive proof - that it exists, narrowing down the search for what is believed to be a basic building block of the universe. The researchers...

Aside from the slogan on the water tower that reads "City of Energy," there is little in this leafy Chicago suburb of gently rolling hills to indicate that it has been the center of the universe when it comes to studying, well - the universe.

Scientists claimed a breakthrough Thursday in solving one of the biggest riddles of physics, successfully trapping the first "anti-atom" that they hope will help them understand what happened to all of the antimatter created by the Big Bang.
Nov 8, 2010 at 3:27 PM
Scientists at the world's largest atom smasher said Monday they have succeeded in recreating conditions shortly after the Big Bang by switching the particles they use for collisions from protons to much heavier lead ions.
