Higgs Boson

Leon Lederman coined the phrase "God particle."
Can this theory be tested? Yes! In quantum physics, any field will have particle properties. That means that we should be
Fabiola Gianotti has some very big goals.
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.
"It seems quite clear to me that the academic journal is an anachronism," he wrote. "Digital technology enables us to communicate
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. Singh knows a thing or two about the Higgs boson, the elementary particle whose existence
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.
Was all the Higgs hoopla a bit premature? "We will need more data collected over the coming years in order to be able to
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.
Evidence confirming the existence of the Higgs boson was found in 2012. That sounds pretty bad. But don't worry. Hawking
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.
Resolving the proton spin crisis is vital not just for understanding spin, but to learn where protons and many other particles
