What Today's Higgs Boson Discovery Really Means

Earlier today, scientists from the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of a subatomic particle that's consistent with the Higgs Boson. So, have physicists finally found the elusive particle? Short answer? Yes. Longer answer? Well... » 7/04/12 1:08pm 7/04/12 1:08pm

Have we really found the God Particle? CERN physicists say don't…

The internet is beside itself with rumors that the long-sought Higgs Boson has been found — but a representative from one of the teams searching for the so-called "God Particle" says to chill the frak out. So what's going on here? Are researchers waiting for an international physics conference in July to make their… » 6/20/12 11:43am 6/20/12 11:43am

The Large Hadron Collider takes us one big step closer to finding the…

Back in December, CERN physicists announced that they had probably spotted the long-awaited Higgs boson - at least, there was a 99.7% chance that they had. Now they've examined the data again, and it's looking even better for the Higgs. » 2/07/12 11:47am 2/07/12 11:47am

Physicists reveal compelling evidence for the "God Particle"

This morning, physicists representing the Large Hadron Collider's two largest experiments — ATLAS and CMS — announced that both teams have independently uncovered signals that point to the appearance of the Higgs boson. That's the long-sought sub-atomic particle thought to endow all other particles with mass. » 12/13/11 9:00am 12/13/11 9:00am
