Physicists working with the experimental results of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, reported the discovery of two previously unknown massive particles. The team of scientists analyzed the data obtained during the experiment BaBar, which was conducted in 2006 by a team of physicists at Stanford. Then the researchers noticed two energy burst, but could not find an explanation.
Now, a group led by Tim Gershon from the University of Warwick in the UK has announced that the energy bursts were caused by the presence of two massive particles, mesons. The mass of each of these particles, which so far have received the code name DS3 (2860) and DS1 (2860), nearly three times the mass of the proton and corresponds to 2.86.

Scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider, analyzing the data obtained earlier experiments confirmed that free in July 2012 particle really is a Higgs boson, nicknamed the God particle.
Preliminary results of processing the entire volume of data obtained in 2012, an impressive and make open to me that we are dealing with a Higgs boson. But we have a long way to find out what type it is the Higgs boson, said the head of the CMS collaboration Joe Inkandela, quoted by RIA Novosti press service of the European Organization for Nuclear Research .

Operation completed in 2012. Meet again briefly in 2013, during a session of the proton-nucleus collisions. Proton-proton collisions at high energies will resume in 2015,” – said in a statement on the online status monitor collider, joked scholars, quoting a phrase from the book by Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy “, which in this book is utter Dolphins leaving Earth.
Before Collider finally stops, it will be carried out another experiment, from 14 January to 10 February 2013 with the help collide protons and nuclei of lead. After that, the LHC will begin to modernize.

The LHC will be closed for winter vacation. But physicists will – to solve the puzzle. Will try to understand where the missing protons in the experiments. It is suspected that the blame for this UFO.
ONCE THE UNIVERSE HAS A LIQUID
December 6 in a giant underground ring of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) instead of protons pushed the heavy lead ions. And producing a substance that appeared immediately after the Big Bang. And as a result of it. For it is with this puzzling event allegedly began creation of the world. And at first it – the world – there were no atoms or molecules, especially as there was only so-called quark-gluon plasma. Her something and give rise to the broken pieces after a head-on collisions of lead ions. Of the products, scientists simulate the first moments of the universe, arranging a large explosion in a nutshell. And try to understand what happened. And some are already doing a sensational conclusions.
For example, the University of Birmingham researchers led by Dr. David Evans thought: just appeared, the universe does not behave as a gas. As previously assumed. Rather, the Universe was a liquid. And the expression “quark-gluon soup”, which was used in jest to the primary matter, it may be not just a figure. Continue reading “In the LHC there UFOs”
Scientists working at one of the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider for the first time since the beginning of the accelerator got a piece that contains the “beautiful quark” and “strange” antiquark.
According to a message on the site detector LHCb, which was “trapped” particle, the researchers managed to reconstruct the event, for all characteristics coinciding with the collapse of the particle, consisting of a quark b and antiquark s.

Physicists working on the Large Hadron Collider, unable to register the first beautiful particle – meson B +.
This is reported in a press release on the site of the experiment LHC.
B + gets its name from the fact that consists of the u-quark and b-quark, or antiquark beautiful. To register one such particle, which was born as a result of the collision of high energy protons in the accelerator, scientists had to analyze about 10 million such collisions.

Production of resonators in which the particles are accelerated in the Large Hadrons Collider, required developing technology for producing high-purity metals, especially niobium.
Scientists believe that it will facilitate a new round of scientific and technical progress in metallurgy.
The article on the unexpected connection, high-energy physics to metallurgy, published in the journal Physical Review Special Topics – Accelerators and Beams. At first glance, it is devoted to specific matters – making niobium cavities for the acceleration of charged particles. But in fact, created specifically for the unique facilities of technology can significantly affect the steel industry.

Apparently – geniuses of science are preparing for the new record.
It is expected that after the launch of the accelerator at 15-16 days of February the total energy of particle collisions in it will be increased almost three times! – From 2,36 teraelectronvolt to 7 teraelectronvolt.
In dekabrt 2009 Physics CERN successfully set a world record in the experiments at the huge accelerator in history – it passed the first beams of protons at the collision energy of 2.36 teraelectronvolt.
Collision energy in the largest to date, the collider – the Tevatron accelerator at Fermi lab name (USA) – does not exceed 1,8 teraelectronvolt, beams of protons and antiprotons in it were dispersed to the energy of 900 GeV each.
