Latest Higgs boson Stories
Two physicists, one from the United States and one from France, were revealed on Tuesday October 9, 2012 as winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics.
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’.

While the science community celebrates a monumental discovery, one researcher who helped lead the discovery of the God particle has been shunned by his home country.
Now that the ‘God Particle’ has been discovered, is it time to pack up CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and move on to other projects?
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.
Scientists at Europe’s CERN research center have revealed the discovery of a new subatomic particle, one that could be the elusive Higgs boson or “God particle.”
