Latest CERN Stories
About ten years ago British physicist Stephen Hawking was at a conference in South Korea when he made a small wager with University of Michigan physicist Gordon Kane that the long-theorized Higgs boson particle did not exist, a bet that Kane honored four years later, by sending the world renown physicist a check for $100, acknowledging that there was no Higgs.
Scientists at Europe’s CERN research center have revealed the discovery of a new subatomic particle, one that could be the elusive Higgs boson or “God particle.”
Before Wednesday's big CERN event, Tevatron scientists have admitted that they are still uncertain about the existence of the God particle.
CERN will present preliminary findings from its search for the Higgs Boson, the so-called ‘God particle’, on July 4 as an international physics conference gets underway, the Geneva-based organization said on Thursday.
Researchers at CERN are closing in on the so-called ‘God Particle’ that is the last major missing piece to the theoretical Standard Model of how the universe works at its most basic level.
The Director of CERN says that he is confident that his group will have proven the existence of the Higgs Boson before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is turned off for upgrades at year's end.
It has not discovered the Higgs Boson -- not yet, anyway -- but the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator has revealed a never-before-discovered particle comprised of three quarks.
After a short winter break, physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the French-Swiss border have set a new world record by successfully smashing two 4 teraelectronvolt (TeV) proton beams together producing a total of 8 TeVs.
