Latest Subatomic particles Stories
For decades, physicists have searched in vain for exotic bound states comprising more than three quarks.
The UPV/EHU physicist Eneko Malatsetxebarria has explored, on a theoretical level, some quantum effects that take place in atoms at a very low temperature.
An international group of scientists led by Aldo Antognini, a physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, say the proton, a basic building block of all matter, appears to be smaller than previously thought.
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’.
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.
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.
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.
After a search that has lasted roughly three-quarters of a century, researchers believe they have at long last discovered evidence of an elusive particle that could be its own anti-particle.
