Latest Standard Model Stories
It’s been just over one year since the discovery of the Higgs boson was all but confirmed, but researchers now believe that there might be particles even smaller that have yet to be discovered.
Scientists working on the world’s leading particle collider experiments have joined forces, combined their data and produced the first joint result from Fermilab’s Tevatron and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe?
From matching wings on butterflies to the repeating six-point pattern of snowflakes, symmetries echo through nature, even down to the smallest building blocks of matter.
Scientists have long predicted the universe could one day collapse, compressing everything contained within, much like a building that can’t contain its own weight. Sooner or later, scientists believe the universe will cause every little particle in it to become extremely heavy, causing all material to squeeze into a small, super-hot and super-heavy ball.
While many scientists hail the discovery of the Higgs boson as one of the preeminent finds of our time, one of the top thinkers of our era said that he was disappointed by the Nobel Prize-winning research – and admitted that he lost a $100 bet as a result of it.
