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.

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.

Particle Colliders Yield Big Results When Limiting Chaos
2014-06-30 03:19:44

When beams with trillions of particles go zipping around at near light speed, there's bound to be some chaos. Limiting that chaos in particle colliders is crucial for the groundbreaking results such experiments are designed to deliver.

New Evidence Surfaces In Favor Of Higgs Boson Discovery

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.


Word of the Day
upstander
  • A person who stands up for something, as contrasted to a bystander who remains inactive.
  • One of the upright handlebars on a traditional Inuit sled.
The word 'upstander' in the first sense here is a play on the word 'bystander' and the idea of 'standing up' for something.
