Higgs boson: no news is God news

The Higgs boson, the elusive so-called “God particle” that gives other particles mass, is still proving to be elusive, with the release yesterday of nebulous findings from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that physicists say “hint” at the elemental particle’s existence. Finding the predicted Higgs particle would complete the standard model of particle physics that […]

Physicists observe single top-quark




Physicists at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have observed particle collisions that produce single top quarks. The discovery of the single top confirms important parameters of particle physics, including the total number of quarks, and has significance for the ongoing search for the Higgs boson. Previously, top quarks had only been observed […]
