Latest W and Z bosons Stories
More than two years after physicists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle, scientists continue to debate whether or not the new elementary particle they detected was actually the elusive Higgs boson.
The Higgs boson has been hailed as one of the greatest physics discovery of all time, but preeminent scientist Stephen Hawking has a different take on the so-called God particle – he believes that it could destroy the universe.
While the LHC is shut down to upgrade the accelerator – eventually allowing it to operate at even higher energies – scientists working on the project are continuing to sift through the massive amount of data accumulated through 2012.
UC Santa Barbara physicist Tarun Grover has provided definitive mathematical evidence for supersymmetry in a condensed matter system.
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.
HAMPTON, Va., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Is the quest for the tiniest particle the key to understanding the universe?
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.
Scientists from CERN say the latest analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator support the claim that scientists did in fact find the elusive Higgs boson particle last year.
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’.
