CERN physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland are to increase the machine’s energy output to embark on a last-ditch journey to find the elusive Higgs boson, a theoretical “God particle” that could change physics as we know it.


Word of the Day
sudarium
  • A handkerchief.
  • Specifically— The legendary sweat-cloth; the handkerchief of St. Veronica, according to tradition miraculously impressed with the mask of Christ; also, the napkin about Christ's head (Johu xx. 7).
  • In general, any miraculous portrait of Christ.
The word 'sudarium' comes from a Latin word meaning 'a handkerchief'.
