The new Electron-Ion Collider could solve the mystery of how matter holds together

When the Nobel Prize-winning US physicist Robert Hofstadter and his team fired highly energetic electrons at a small vial of hydrogen at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in 1956, they opened the door to a new era of physics. Until then, it was thought that protons and neutrons, which make up an atom’s nucleus, were the most fundamental particles in nature. They were considered to be “dots” in space, lacking physical dimensions. Now it suddenly became clear that these particles were not fun...

The US is building its first new particle collider in decades on Long Island. Stephen Hawking called the technology a 'time machine.'

A new particle collider is set to be built at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Long Island, New York.  Particle colliders smash charged particles against one another at nearly the speed of light to reveal some of their fundamental properties.  The only operating one in the US is Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. It will shut down in 2024 to make room for the new machine, which could be operational by 2030. Visit Businessinsider.com for more stories. A machine that will invest...
