Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful “atom smasher,” report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test the mechanism by which the recently discovered Higgs particle imparts mass to other fundamental particles.
Physicists serving on the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5)—a subcommittee of the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) that advises the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation—today submitted a report with recommendations on the future of the field.
The acclaimed documentary follows the story of six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider and gives audiences a front row seat to a significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough they make as they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe.
In addition to serving as the U.S. host laboratory for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, Brookhaven National Laboratory plays multiple roles in this massive international undertaking, ranging from construction and project management to data storage and distribution.
