Large Hadron Collider Resumes Post 3-Year Slumber, Set to Decode Universe’s Origins

After a three-year break for maintenance and upgrades, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is ready to resume experiments with increased collision power and upgraded detectors. This phase aims to discover new particles such as the right-handed neutrino and explore the elusive components of dark matter, potentially offering new insights into why the universe exists at all.

How Dark Matter Annihilation Could Be Warming Neutron Stars

Recent research suggests that neutron stars may capture dark matter, which could significantly affect their thermal properties and evolution. If dark matter particles interact with each other or decay, they might release energy that could heat neutron stars from the inside, making them appear hotter than they otherwise would be. This phenomenon offers a unique method to detect dark matter indirectly and understand its properties, providing a new perspective on the universe's most elusive matter.

Revolutionary Find: CERN Team Exceeds Light Speed, Challenges Einstein

Discover the groundbreaking announcement from CERN where researchers have potentially surpassed the speed of light with neutrinos, challenging Einstein's century-old theory of special relativity. This article delves into the implications of this revolutionary finding, the process behind the experiment at Gran Sasso Laboratory, and the potential for redefining the laws of physics as we know them. Explore the cautious optimism of the scientific community and the steps towards validating a discovery that could change our understanding of the universe.
