Scientists have restarted the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and recently began to record data from particle collisions at a record-high energy.

During this second phase of data collection at the Large Hadron Collider, an international team of scientists, including Purdue's particle physics group, will search for dark matter, delve into the details of the Higgs particle and seek a greater understanding of our universe.

+Peter Cornwell  if that could happen then i am sure that this physical phenomenon occurs many places on many galaxies and we should be seeing stars disappearing regularly. Surely if we magnify this project  an hundred billion times than the physics may change somewhat.

Research funding at Purdue University has soared to record levels, reaching $401 million for the fiscal year completed on June 30. The Purdue University Board of Trustees received the report today (July 17), signaling 2014-15 as Purdue’s best year for external research funding when ARRA funds are excluded from award totals.

A team of Purdue researchers has created a new implantable drug-delivery system using nanowires that can be wirelessly controlled. The nanowires respond to an electromagnetic field generated by a separate device, which can be used to control the release of a preloaded drug.
