Exploring the Frontiers of Energy, Intensity and the Cosmos

Brookhaven leads high-energy/particle physics experiments onsite and in collaborations around the globe that probe the deepest secrets of the universe and allow physicists to delve into many of the most pressing questions about the fabric of space and time:

  • What is the origin of mass?
  • Was the universe born with secret symmetries?
  • What is the invisible dark matter that fills galaxies?
  • What are the masses of ghost-like neutrinos?
  • What happened to the antimatter in the universe?
  • What is the mysterious force of dark energy?
