Scientists at CERN have been gearing the Large Hadron Collider up for its first active run in two years, but starting up the massive particle physics system will be put on hold for a bit after a short circuit was detected in a powerful electromagnet.

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.

More than two years after physicists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle, scientists continue to debate whether or not the new elementary particle they detected was actually the elusive Higgs boson.


Word of the Day
honeyguide
  • Any of various tropical Old World birds of the family Indicatoridae, some species of which lead people or animals to the nests of wild honeybees. The birds eat the wax and larvae that remain after the nest has been destroyed for its honey.
Honeyguide birds have even been known to eat candles.
