Unifying all the forces and particles would require a particle accelerator far more powerful than humans have ever built.
An international group of physicists has announced that they have seen the first signals in a cube-shaped detector called ProtoDUNE.
Ten years ago, the world's largest scientific instrument was turned on and the start of a research dynasty began.
For the first time, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider have unambiguously detected Higgs bosons decaying into a matter-antimatter pair of bottom quarks.
The history behind the discovery is a fascinating tale with twist and turns that would make Agatha Christie's head spin.
The g-2 experiment has begun and it has the potential to shake up the reigning model of particle physics.
The gravitational-wave research community seems to be having a remarkable string of good luck. Here's what the smashing finding means.
A new night-sky survey of distant galaxies suggests that dark matter is less "lumpy" than previously thought.
While many people take the existence of dark matter for granted, it's still a theory that has yet to be proven. But new evidence could bolster support for dark matter theories.
There's a concrete reason enormous particle accelerator experiments won't spawn black holes and end the world.
Co-author of more than 800 scientific papers, Don Lincoln pursues a range of elusive questions, from the nature of dark matter to the structure of quarks and leptons.
