Latest Higgs boson Stories
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.
It makes sense that the credit for science papers with multiple authors should go to the authors who perform the bulk of the research, yet that’s not always the case.
SINGAPORE, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Zecotek Photonics Inc.
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.
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.
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.
The Large Hadron Collider has already played an essential role in the discovery of the so-called God particle, and now the world’s largest particle collider may have helped scientists discover a new form of matter known as the tetraquark.
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
It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered.
