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
