Has The Higgs Boson Really Been Found?
2012-08-01 13:56:54

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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´. A new report by the Atlas team working at the Large Hadron Collider that cited...

Physicists Around The World Cheer The Discovery Of The Higgs Particle

Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson The mystery of the origin of matter seems to have been solved. At the middle of last week, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, announced the discovery of a new particle that could be the long sought-after Higgs boson. The particle has a mass of about 126 gigaelectron volts (GeV), roughly that of 126...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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? Not so fast, say physicists who are looking to upgrade the 4-year-old particle accelerator. CERN´s governing body has just approved plans that would shut down the LHC for two years while it gets a $1.9 billion upgrade. The improvements would theoretically increase the power of...

Hunt For The Higgs: A Bet, A Glitch, And A Gateway
2012-07-05 15:29:04

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online 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. And then, just a few years later, in 2008, when the...

New Particle Discovery Could Be The Elusive Higgs Boson

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The Fourth of July is a day of celebration for millions of people all across America, celebrating the birth of a nation. But in Geneva, Switzerland, a much different celebration is occurring as 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.” The revelation was made at a seminar held at CERN today (July...

Tevatron Announces Find Higgs Finding Ahead Of CERN's July 4 Announcement
2012-07-02 14:17:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Tevatron scientists have made a lackluster announcement before Wednesday's big event, by admitting they are still uncertain about the existence of the God particle. Just two days before the highly anticipated announcement of the latest Higgs-search results come out from the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, the U.S. Department of Energy´s Tevatron collider scientists failed to announce a finding first, but did present more...

CERN, LHC, Higgs Boson
2012-06-29 05:47:22

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, 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. The announcement will include the latest results from ATLAS and CMS, two major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that are searching for the...

Record Setting 7.2 Trillion Degrees Fahrenheit In New York
2012-06-28 07:57:05

[ Watch the Video ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com As record-setting heat and wildfires continue to consume Colorado, one team of scientists has created a temperature so hot the Sun would melt. Scientists working with a giant atom smasher at New York's Brookhaven National Laboratory have created the hottest temperature ever seen on Earth, at 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit. The excruciatingly hot temperature has been verified by the Guinness Book of Records, and confirmed as...
