Fermilab experiment discovers a heavy relative of the neutron

Scientists of the CDF collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced the observation of a new particle, the neutral Xi-sub-b (Ξb0). This particle contains three quarks: a strange quark, an up quark and a bottom quark … Continue reading

Keeping it Real

The first results on supersymmetry from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have been analysed by physicists and some are suggesting that the theory may be in trouble. Data from proton collisions in both the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) and ATLAS … Continue reading

The Cross Over Point and Time Travel

One of the issues that is evoked by any faster-than-light transport is time paradoxes: causality violations and implications of time travel. As if the faster than light issue wasn’t tough enough, it is possible to construct elaborate scenarios where faster-than-light … Continue reading

SuperCritical Fluid

What choice do I have but to quote myself.:) At 11:47 AM, January 09, 2009, Blogger Plato said… Superfluous is a mathematical construct for sure. Continuity, asked not from the condense matter theorist point of view as Jacque’s remind, or, … Continue reading

Is the LHC Leaking Energy?

This is not to bring “the doom and gloom of micro blackhole creation” into the picture although I do see that the QGP arrived at can bring other perspectives forward, that would relegate questions to my mind. For instance. So … Continue reading

The Extra Dimensions in the LHC

String Theorists, for a million bucks, do you think you can answer “the question” and it’s applicability? Now it should be clear here that while I speak of extra dimensions I am referring to that energy that is not accountable, … Continue reading
