Time's quantum arrow has a preferred direction: BaBar experiment confirms time asymmetry
(Phys.org)—Time marches relentlessly forward for you and me; watch a movie in reverse, and you'll quickly see something is amiss. But from the point of view of a single, isolated particle, the passage of ...

Evidence found for the Higgs boson direct decay into fermions
For the first time, researchers at CERN have found evidence for the direct decay of the Higgs boson into fermions—another strong indication that the particle discovered in 2012 behaves in the way the standard ...
Should the Higgs boson have caused our Universe to collapse?
(Phys.org) —British cosmologists are puzzled: they predict that the Universe should not have lasted for more than a second. This startling conclusion is the result of combining the latest observations of ...
