Latest Higgs boson Stories
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.
Scientists working on the world’s leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe?
Scientists gathered in Geneva, Switzerland last week to consider the possibility of building a particle accelerator four times the size as the current largest accelerator in the world.
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.
While many scientists hail the discovery of the Higgs boson as one of the preeminent finds of our time, one of the top thinkers of our era said that he was disappointed by the Nobel Prize-winning research – and admitted that he lost a $100 bet as a result of it.
A research team is hunting for a theorized but never-before-seen elementary particle called an axion that may be at the heart of dark matter.
