    The social life of quarks.

    By smashing particles at high energies, physicists have blasted into fleeting existence hundreds of other hadrons—particles made of quarks. Last year, LHCb researchers spotted particles made of five quarks.

    Winter therapy for the accelerators.

    Since 14 December, no particles have circulated in any part of CERN's accelerator chain, from the particle source to the intermediate rings and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) itself.

    Gravitational-wave rumours in overdrive.

    LIGOs interferometers bounce laser beams between mirrors at the opposite ends of 4-kilometre-long vacuum pipes, aiming to detect passing gravitational waves that stretch and compress the length of the pipes - along with the rest of space.

    Physicists continue to investigate why the universe did not collapse.

    Previous research has shown that, in the early universe, the Higgs field may have acquired large enough fluctuations to overcome an energy barrier that caused the universe to transition from its standard vacuum state to a negative energy vacuum state, which would have caused the universe to quickly collapse in on itself.
