The Large Hadron Collider is tantalizingly close to finding the Higgs…

Once again, there's excitement in the physics community about the possible discovery of the Higgs boson. But this time, it's multiple discoveries...both experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have detected some intriguing possibilities, as has Fermilab's Tevatron.

Maybe Fermilab isn't about to discover a new particle after all

One of the two research teams at Fermilab has been on the trail of a new subatomic particle for months, and they're almost certain they've found it. But the other research team has just checked the data...and they've found nothing. » 6/12/11 1:30pm 6/12/11 1:30pm

Fermilab is this close to discovering a brand new subatomic particle

Back in April, Fermilab physicists detected a strange bump in their data that couldn't be explained by any known particles. The mystery remains unsolved, and it's looking more and more likely that we're on the verge of a major discovery. » 6/08/11 1:56pm 6/08/11 1:56pm
