New Evidence Surfaces In Favor Of Higgs Boson Discovery
2014-06-24 14:23:51

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Nearly two years ago the physics community was abuzz with news that researchers at the LHC had found evidence of the Higgs Boson, the long sought particle that could finally explain where all particles in the Universe get their mass. However, this initial finding was only the beginning. The data only revealed that the team had found a Higgs-like particle, one that exhibited the expected behavior predicted by theorists. But...

HADES Experiments Searching For Dark Matter
2014-05-13 03:30:32

Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf Although Dark Energy and Dark Matter appear to constitute over 95 percent of the universe, nobody knows of which particles they are made up. Astrophysicists now crossed one potential Dark Matter candidate – the Dark Photon or U boson – off the list in top position. This is the result of recent HADES experiments, where researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and from 17 other European institutes try to pin down the nature of...

New Evidence Suggests Universal Collapse May Soon Be Upon Us
2013-12-12 15:09:39

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Physicists are now saying the universe may be closer to collapsing than previously believed. Scientists have long predicted the universe could one day collapse, compressing everything contained within, much like a building that can’t contain its own weight. Sooner or later, scientists believe the universe will cause every little particle in it to become extremely heavy, causing all material to squeeze into a small, super-hot and...

Hawking Speaks About God Particle Discovery
2013-11-13 05:17:51

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While many scientists hail the discovery of the Higgs boson as one of the preeminent finds of our time, one of the top thinkers of our era said that he was disappointed by the Nobel Prize-winning research – and admitted that he lost a $100 bet as a result of it. The man behind those comments is none other than theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and best-selling author Stephen Hawking, who according to Guardian Science...

Physicist who worked on nobel winning hadron experiment to discuss the God particle at Maker House. (PRWEB) October 09, 2013 Professor Higgs and Professor Englert were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for the confirmation of the Higgs particle (aka the God Particle). But what exactly is that? What does it do? In a way it gives things their mass, but a more appropriate question might be why do things have mass at all? Physicists predicted that the previously undetected particle...

University of Maryland scientists played a significant role in the world-wide scientific collaboration that discovered the Higgs boson particle, confirming the theoretical work of François Englert and Peter Higgs and leading to their winning of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics. College Park, Md. (PRWEB) October 08, 2013 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences today awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 to François Englert and Peter Higgs to recognize their work developing the...
