    Particle physics: The ghosts and the machine
    Deep beneath the plains of Illinois, in a man-made cavern filled with racks of scientific equipment, someone has spray-painted a white circle onto the bare rock wall. Stand in front of it and you are standing in the path of the most powerful beam of neutrinos in the world, which is emerging from a nearby particle accelerator at Fermilab, America's main particle-physics laboratory. With any other kind of accelerator, standing in the beam would have spectacular and fatal consequences. But your correspondent was not vapourised--nor, several weeks later, has he developed either cancer or superpowers.

    A behind-the-scenes look at the Higgs boson search in 'Particle Fever'
    It was the biggest experiment in the history of physics, a $10-billion project to find a subatomic particle called the Higgs boson. An army of scientists and engineers spent nearly 30 years designing and building the Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile...
