Researchers have made the first experimental determination of the weak charge of the proton in research carried out at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab). The results, accepted for publication in Physical Review Letters, also include the determinations of the weak charge of the neutron, and of the up quark and down quark. These determinations were made by combining the new data with published data from other experiments. Although these...

Higgs Boson Dark Energy
2013-08-12 08:44:59

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For the better part of two decades, the greatest fundamental question facing physics and cosmology has been, quite simply, what is dark energy? Detailed observations of galaxies in our Universe reveal the expansion of the Universe is accelerating. Even after accounting for all of the normal matter, radiation, and even the theorized dark matter out there, there still simply isn't enough "stuff" to explain the dynamics of the...

New novel aims to get teens interested in science through science fiction and old fashioned adventure. NEW YORK, N. Y. (PRWEB) July 22, 2013 “The Higgs Boson is forgotten,” grumbled author Michael Raymond. “The biggest scientific discovery in a generation, and many people haven’t even heard of it.” CERN, the organization that discovered the Higgs Boson has since moved on to researching dark matter, another substance largely unfamiliar to the public. The author hopes to change...

AMSTERDAM, September 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Physics Letters B, Elsevier's flagship journal in high energy physics, announced today that the observations of the long-sought Higgs particle, hailed as one of the greatest scientific discoveries of all time, have been published. The papers: "Observation of a new boson at a mass of 125 GeV with the CMS experiment at the LHC" [http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0370269312008581 ] and "Observation of a new particle in...

Has The Higgs Boson Really Been Found?
2012-08-01 13:56:54

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online After years of theories and speculation, the Higgs boson particle discovery was announced on July 4, or was it? Several caveats swirled around the somewhat anti-climactic announcement, and almost a month later many scientists familiar with the CERN project are still reluctant to definitively say what they found was the so-called ℠God Particle´. A new report by the Atlas team working at the Large Hadron Collider that cited...

Physicists Around The World Cheer The Discovery Of The Higgs Particle

Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson The mystery of the origin of matter seems to have been solved. At the middle of last week, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, announced the discovery of a new particle that could be the long sought-after Higgs boson. The particle has a mass of about 126 gigaelectron volts (GeV), roughly that of 126...

Hunt For The Higgs: A Bet, A Glitch, And A Gateway
2012-07-05 15:29:04

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. And then, just a few years later, in 2008, when the...
