Latest Peter Higgs Stories
Physicists sorting out the evidence from last summer's LHC experiments are calculating new data that may show the universe is not as infinite as previously believed.
There may never be another scientific genius on the level of Einstein, Newton, Darwin or Copernicus, one prominent US psychology professor claims in a recently published article.
One of the world’s most renowned physicists has likely got something bigger on his mind now than solving puzzles of the universe.
Success at the world's largest particle accelerator LHC / Experiments involving scientists from Mainz University show first direct evidence of the Higgs boson
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.”
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.
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.
The Director of CERN says that he is confident that his group will have proven the existence of the Higgs Boson before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is turned off for upgrades at year's end.
