Latest Higgs boson Stories
CERN announced this week it will be shutting down the LHC after three successful years of operation, giving the particle smasher a break until 2015.
One of the world’s most renowned physicists has likely got something bigger on his mind now than solving puzzles of the universe.
In order to measure the shortest light pulses ever created, physicists plan to convert the CERN particle collider in Geneva, Switzerland into the planet's most accurate stop watch by 2018.
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?
