Scientists say they may be able to determine the eventual fate of the cosmos as they probe the properties of the Higgs boson.
The newly discovered boson is behaving more and more like the particle physicists predicted
God particle is 'found': Scientists at Cern expected to announce on Wednesday Higgs boson particle has been discovered
US scientists report seeing tentative evidence of the Higgs boson, at a mass similar to the hints seen at the Large Hadron Collider.
The most coveted prize in particle physics - the Higgs boson - may have been glimpsed, say researchers reporting at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva.
Rumours abound that Cern scientists have finally glimpsed the long-sought Higgs boson. We asked physicists to share their thoughts on the elusive entity
Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a particle accelerator at CERN Laboratory in Switzerland, are trying to slam particles together hard enough to break them into never-before-seen pieces, which could solve some of the biggest puzzles in nature.
But UFOs — unidentified falling objects, that is — keep getting in their way.
mildy misleading title.
A US particle machine has seen possible hints of the Higgs boson, it has emerged, after reports this week of similar glimpses at Europe's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) laboratory.
The race to discover an elusive subatomic particle that was predicted by researchers with pen and paper nearly half a century ago enters the final straight this week at the home of the world's largest scientific instrument.
Suck it CERN, the Chicago-area particle accelerator may have beaten the LHC. At least there are rumors of it.
...recent results from the LHC's US rival suggest physicists could be hunting five particles, not one. The data may point to new laws of physics beyond the current accepted theory - known as the Standard Model. The Higgs boson's nickname comes from its importance to the Standard Model; it is the sub-atomic particle which explains why all other particles have mass. However, despite decades trying, no one, so far, has detected it.
As Cern prepares to switch on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) below the French-Swiss border, the physicist has a bet that it will not find the Higgs boson - the most highly sought-after particle in physics.
