The search for the elusive Higgs boson particle appears on track to become a one-horse race this year, after the United Statesâ€™ Tevatron accelerator was denied an extension to remain operating through 2014.
An expert panel said today that the lifetime of the Tevatron "particle smasher" should be extended by three years.
Physicists have denied rumors that a US atom smasher has detected the elusive Higgs boson.
The atom-smashing Large Hadron Collider is to run year-round to make up for the year lost to a helium leak, researchers in Geneva said.
Fermilab, the US maker of the Tevatron accelerator, is claiming itâ€™s European rival, particle physics lab CERN, is rapidly losing ground in the race to discover the elusive Higgs boson, or "God particle."
