Higgs Boson

They knew that the apparent mass of the electron changes when it moves through a crystal, like silicon or quartz. So maybe
Is there proof in Nature that electric field lines are not repulsive? Yes. In the transverse electromagnetic wave, both the electric and magnetic field lines are well behaved, non-repulsive, parallel (not warped) field lines that are orthogonal to the direction of propagation. Hiding in plain sight!
Physics is by consensus! In gravitational theories we have three accords, Relativity, Strings & Quantum (RSQ) theories. Like a board of directors, the physics community, based on empirical evidence, agree to disagree on how Nature works. Nature, herself, has only one vote, and it is a veto.
Three great unsolved mysteries remain, and they are the same riddles asked by ancient Greek philosophers: What is the universe made of? Where did the universe come from? How do we know what's real?
But in the last half century or so, a great many theories either cannot be proven through gathering evidence or barely can be.
But other experts argue it may be time to rethink how scientists get credited for their work -- and even how new research
I was happy to attend the White House ceremony on May 7 to sign the agreement between the U.S. and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) to renew the collaboration in particle physics and advanced computing.
Maybe Homer Simpson only acts dumb. His doctoral thesis is entitled "Heavy flavour physics at the CERN PP̄ collider"--CERN
In another few months the Large Hadron Collider will be powered up to explore its maximum energy range. Many physicists fervently hope we will see definite signs of "new physics," especially a phenomenon called "supersymmetry."
For our research at the Large Hadron Collider with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, 2014 was a year of hard work. The LHC has been in a planned shutdown since 2013 and the plan is to start giving proton-proton collisions again in mid-2015.
It had all the trappings of a typical Miami funeral. The eulogists, stifling their tears. The aria, Handel's mournful Piangero la Sorte Mia. The loud lamentations of the black laced lloradera.
Space is not empty but is permeated everywhere by the Higgs field: from the privacy of your bathroom to the most distant reaches of our universe. But because it is a field in Nature, it allows 'empty space' to have its own energy as this field interacts with itself.
Did you catch that? Hawking warns that if scientists accelerate the Higgs to incredibly high energy levels, the particle
Gravity is so weak at the atomic and subatomic level because the masses of atoms and subatomic particles are so small. It is strong on the planetary scale because the masses of planets are so large.
So far, the LHC as well as searches elsewhere for neutralinos have come up empty. While many technical and popular articles have declared, "supersymmetry is dead," this is not yet quite the case. SUSY is still alive, but on life support.
Protons have a constant spin that is an intrinsic particle property like mass or charge. Yet where this spin comes from is
