(Phys.org) —If evidence of the Higgs boson revealed two years ago was the smoking gun, particle physicists have now found a few of the bullets. ...
Physicist's blog post rumors Higgs discovery at Fermilab
HADES searches for dark matter
Although Dark Energy and Dark Matter appear to constitute over 95 percent of the universe, nobody knows of which particles they are made up. Astrophysicists now crossed one potential Dark Matter candidate ...
First-time observation of photon polarization emitted in the weak decay of a bottom quark
As members of the LHCb collaboration, scientists at EPFL have analyzed data collected at CERN's Large Hadron Collider that offer a first-time observation of the polarization of the photon emitted in the weak ...
Higgs quest deepens into realm of 'New Physics'
Two years after making history by unearthing the Higgs boson, the particle that confers mass, physicists are broadening their probe into its identity, hoping this will also solve other great cosmic mysteries.
Interview: CERN chief firmer on Higgs boson
The world should know with certainty by the middle of this year whether a subatomic particle discovered by scientists is a long-sought Higgs boson, the head of the world's largest atom smasher said Saturday.
Fewer exploding stars potential predictor of global warming
(Phys.org)—One of the universe's greatest unexplained mysteries – why stars explode – could be explained by a particle similar to the Higgs boson. The theory developed by University of Aberdeen astrophysicist, ...
Higgs boson provides a musical spin
A decades-long quest for the elusive Higgs boson has sparked a creative rush in music, with compositions ranging from a-capella and rap to a hypnotic symphony.
Quirky quark combination creates exotic new particle
Since the spectacular discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the gigantic particle accelerator outside Geneva, have suffered a bit of a drought when it comes ...
Endgame for the Higgs Boson
The last missing piece of scientists fundamental model of particle physics is running out of places to hide.
Higgs search: A half-century odyssey
Over half a century, the Higgs boson has evolved from a theory rejected as daft to a cornerstone of our understanding of the Universe.
CMS closes major chapter of Higgs measurements
Since the discovery of a Higgs boson by the CMS and ATLAS Collaborations in 2012, physicists at the LHC have been making intense efforts to measure this new particle's properties. The Standard Model Higgs ...
Particle collision thought to replicate Big Bang forces, may help explain how things exist
By the logic of science, things simply shouldn't exist. The best scientific minds of several generations have reasoned that shortly after the Big Bang created the universe, matter and antimatter should have wiped each other ...
