The Large Hadron Collider Could Be Coming to an IMAX Near You

“Secrets of the Universe” is a big screen look into a big, big piece of hardware. A big piece of hardware like the Large Hadron Collider needs a big screen to show off its glory, and screens don’t come much bigger than an IMAX. K2 Communications  wants to bring the story of the world’s largest particle collider […]

Who Says Science Movies Don’t Matter?

When I was 12, my father took me to The Children’s Museum in Mexico City to see a movie that I remember as Planets, Moons and Stars. It was unlike any movie I had seen before. There were no good and bad guys or furry animals — just colorful spheres rotating around a ball of fire […]

Revealing the “Secrets of the Universe” in IMAX theaters

A unique IMAX 3D experience that seeks to answer the most essential questions about the universe is just few steps away from being released with an ambitious intention to inspire the inner scientist in every one of us. The film entitled “Secrets of the Universe” will take the science-curious audience for a trip to fascinating […]

‘Physics Girl’ Tells How She Makes Kids Love STEM

The expert educator talks to U.S. News about her career in STEM and how to get kids interested in science. In many ways, Dianna Cowern is the quintessential role model STEM education advocates have been searching for. She’s young, female and a successful college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in physics from a prestigious university. And she […]

Dark Matter Mystery Could Be Solved in Next 10 Years

Dark matter — the mysterious stuff that is thought to make up most of the matter in the known universe — may reveal itself during the next decade, one prominent scientist predicts. When the moment comes, it will result in “a pivotal paradigm shift in physics,” Gianfranco Bertone, a physicist with the University of Amsterdam […]

Milky Way’s Black Hole To Gobble Giant Gas Cloud Soon

A giant gas cloud is set to spiral into the supermassive black hole at the Milky Way’s core in the next few months, and scientists should get a great view of the dramatic celestial action. NASA’s Swift satellite will have a front-row seat for the enormous gas cloud collision, and astronomers can barely contain their […]

Supersymmetric Particles May Lurk In Universe, Physicist Says

Squarks, selectrons and neutralinos may be lurking in the universe, say physicists who suggest supersymmetry — the idea that every known particle has a yet-to-be-discovered sister particle — is not dead, despite the lack of evidence found in its favor. The world’s most powerful atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has yet to find […]

Hadron Collider being revamped ready for new round of experiments

Preparations for a dramatic follow-up to the discovery of the “God particle” will be taking place at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) throughout 2014. The giant atom-smashing machine is currently shut down as technicians and scientists work on its upgrade. By the end of the year they should be ready to boost its particle energy […]

Higgs boson scientists share physics Nobel prize

And so the wait is over. Half a century after he wrote down a theory that would change the world, Peter Higgs, the Edinburgh-based researcher, has won the Nobel Prize in Physics. Higgs, 84, shares the 8m Swedish kronor (£775,000) prize – and no shortage of kudos – with François Englert at the Free University […]
