Summary: What's the most common, yet most elusive and least understood, particle in the universe? The neutrino. Starting with the invention of the nuclear bomb, billions of dollars have been spent in pursuit of this so-called ghost particle. Outnumbering atoms a billion to one, neutrinos are preposterously plentiful, they hardly interact with anything, and they mystifyingly morph between three different...

Pollock, Steven.

Summary: Would you like to know how the universe works? The science that has found many of the answers to that profound and age-old question is particle physics, the study of those impossibly tiny particles with unbelievably strange names : bosons and leptons, quarks and neutrinos. Steven Pollock translates the language of the remarkable science that, in only 100 years, has unlocked the secrets of the...

Cliff, Harry (Harry Victor)

Summary: "By an experimental physicist who works on the Large Hadron Collider, a mind-altering look at the foundational questions bedeviling modern physics, among them: Where does matter come from? Carl Sagan famously said, "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." But what fundamental matter is the universe made of? What banged in the Big Bang? And how did...

Butterworth, Jon

Summary: "This book brings the impossibly small world of particle physics to life, taking readers on a guided journey through the subatomic world. With maps to help "guide" the reader through "Atom Land" along the way, as they learn about "electron ports," "bosoncontinents," "hadron islands," and more"--

Summary: A swollen deficit and a dwindling of political will are chipping away at American leadership in science. This program presents an absorbing case study of the problem, going behind the scenes at Fermilab-the accelerator complex in Illinois where researchers smash atoms and hunt for a particle called the Higgs boson. America's shaky position on the scientific mountaintop becomes clear as a new...

Halpern, Paul

Summary: An accessible look at the hottest topic in physics--particle physics--and the experiment that will transform our understanding of the universe: smashing particles with the Large Hadron Collider to deconstruct matter to its smallest pieces and test the existence of the elusive and theoretical Higgs boson--a.k.a. the God particle.

Summary: There is more to the universe than meets the eye--a lot more. In recent years, scientists have discovered that 95 percent of the contents of the cosmos are invisible to our current methods of direct detection. Yet something is holding galaxies and galaxy clusters together, and something else is causing space to fly apart. Scientists call these invisible components dark matter and dark...
