god particle

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.
This summer may pack plenty of silver-screen explosions, but how many of them tell you what you're made of?
There's a reason Albert Einstein always looked like he'd stuck his finger in a light socket: Physicists spend their days doing some of the most mind-blowing research in science. Here are 10 physics findings that will cramp your brain and make your hair stand on end.
Experts may have all the answers, but let's face it: kids have all the best questions. Today, young science enthusiast Oliver Chapman breaks down the Higgs Boson and why, exactly, it's dubbed the "God particle."
There are many who believe that a world filled with this degree of peace, love and harmony (our true nature) will exist only following an apocalyptic battle that will destroy humanity in the physical realm. But I'm not among them.
If God exists, the deity must be smiling. For behind the high fives and hoopla over the Higgs boson, there's a growing doubt that we are anywhere near to understanding the nature of reality. These doubts arise from two major sources.
The award of the Nobel Prize in physics generally creates a mental blur for most people, since no one can comprehend the current state of physics without training in advanced mathematics. This year was somewhat different, thanks to a nickname.
No one can predict what practical applications can come out of the basic scientific research being done today, but history shows that without basic science we can expect little human progress.
Francois Englert and Peter W. Higgs won the 2013 Nobel Prize For Physics on Tuesday for their research into the Higgs boson particle, nicknamed the "God particle."
Englert, a Belgian theoretical physicist, and Higgs, a British physicist, earned the prestigious prize for "the theoretical
It is the height of irony that at the same time the SSC perished, the community of academic economists was finally comprehending, in detail, what actually causes economies to grow and prosper.
If you’re daunted by the Higgs Boson, don’t be. To understand it, you only need to learn the entire history of physics. Here goes...
This past year has been a momentous one for me. Two research groups found hints that something like me might exist. Two even larger research groups found conclusive evidence that something like me does exist. You people certainly are cautious.
Further tests are still required to determine what the particle is, and whether or not it is the Higgs boson. Although passing
As I marveled at the precision of last month's experimental results of the Higgs boson, I reflected on my part in constructing that radical theory in 1964. The adventure had some wonderful, scary and even embarrassing moments.
Peter Higgs had published the paper that was to bind him forever to the particle that bears his name in 1964, and had waited nearly fifty years for some kind of vindication. "I'm relieved it's coming to an end. It will be nice after all this time to be proved right."
"Why are we here?" is a universal question, and to answer it, you must ask "Why are we conscious? Where did mind come from?" After all, if the observer plays such a key role in turning waves into particles, you can't get very far if you don't know what the observer is actually doing.
