What are tachyons?

Tachyons- A class of particles proposed in the late 1950’s by physicist Arnold Sommerfeld, which are thought to travel faster than the speed of light. All light travels at approximately 2.99792468 *108 meters per second - an increasingly high speed so intense that it would take one-tenth of a second Read more…

ALICE Experiment

Of the six detectors being constructed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), one is A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE), a specialized detector for heavy ion physics.  Scientists hope ALICE will be key in solving the mystery of the origin of matter. All matter is composed of atoms, consisting of Read more…

About LIGO - The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory

In the past, many experiments involving particle collisions and quantum phenomena have been generally associated with the results of high energy particle accelerators, the most famous ones including the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Tevatron at Fermilab.  Yet, a groundbreaking experiment Read more…
