What are the New Technologies for Treating Prostate Cancer? Proton therapy, although heavily promoted, is no more effective for destroying cancerous prostate cells than other interventions — and in most cases, less effective.
Physicists reported discovery of a jewel-like geometric object or amplituhedron, that dramatically simplifies calculations of particle interactions and challenges the notion that space and time are fundamental components of reality.
Images of Big Bang experiments inside particle accelerators at CERN
Boffins in Geneva, Switzerland, have been producing spectacularly colourful results while recreating sub-atomic explosions - like the one that may have happened around the time of the big bang - using atom-sized particles of lead. Above, particle tracks from the first stable run of lead ion collisions seen by the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) detector
Lead ion collision at the Large Hadron Collider. This is the world's highest-energy particle accelerator. Up until now, they were colliding protons. Using lead ions, they created temperatures a million times hotter than at the centre of the
