Two of the greatest scientific research projects of our time – the discovery of the Higgs boson and the search for dark matter – may be related, as researchers from the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden explained in a new Journal of High Energy Physics paper.
Homer predicted the mass of the Higgs boson 14 years before it was discovered.
For the first time ever, a scientist has detected a simulated version of the so-called "God particle" using superconductors, providing evidence that the Higgs boson can be detected without the use of a superconductor, according to a new study published by the journal Nature Physics.
The Higgs boson has been hailed as one of the greatest physics discovery of all time, but preeminent scientist Stephen Hawking has a different take on the so-called God particle – he believes that it could destroy the universe.
NSF selects College’s Rostislav Konoplich, professor of physics, and his students to conduct extensive research on Higgs boson, the subatomic particle that accounts for the creation of mass.
While the LHC is shut down to upgrade the accelerator – eventually allowing it to operate at even higher energies – scientists working on the project are continuing to sift through the massive amount of data accumulated through 2012.
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.
Nobel Prize winning physicists, including a 2013 Nobel laureate who predicted the Higgs boson, and the discoverers of quarks and “color” join other distinguished speakers at "50 Years
HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe?
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 super-heavy ball.
