Latest Higgs boson Stories
Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson
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.”
Before Wednesday's big CERN event, Tevatron scientists have admitted that they are still uncertain about the existence of the God particle.
CERN will present preliminary findings from its search for the Higgs Boson, the so-called ‘God particle’, on July 4 as an international physics conference gets underway, the Geneva-based organization said on Thursday.
Recently analyzed data from the BaBar experiment may suggest possible flaws in the Standard Model of particle physics, the reigning description of how the universe works on subatomic scales.
Researchers at CERN are closing in on the so-called ‘God Particle’ that is the last major missing piece to the theoretical Standard Model of how the universe works at its most basic level.
- Stoppage; cessation (of labor).
- A standing still or idling (of mills, factories, etc.).
