Carleton University senior researchers and students have been working for three years with the federal government and industry partners on a large scanning device that uses unique cosmic rays called muons.

The Cosmic Ray Inspection and Passive Tomography (CRIPT) system has many possible real-world applications, including the potential to be a valuable tool in detecting and deterring the illegal movement of atomic materials, including uranium and plutonium, as well as other counter-...

In the summer of 2012, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson. The particle describes the missing piece of the puzzle that would give mass to the objects in the universe. Maclean’s Magazine called its discovery “the biggest scientific achievement of a generation.” The particle that was discovered has since been verified as a Higgs Boson, though many questions remain about its nature.
