At the recent CERN Moriond Conference, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) presented preliminary new results, finding that the new particle is looking more and more like a Higgs boson, the particle linked to the...
The new particle discovered at experiments at the Large Hadron Collider last summer is looking more like a Higgs boson than ever before, according to results announced today. On July 4, physicists on the CMS and ATLAS experiments announced...Show More Summary
Scientists working with CERN's Large Hadron Collider have presented preliminary new results that further elucidate the particle discovered last year. Having analyzed two and a half times more data than was available for the discovery...Show More Summary
Scientists have been searching for the elusive sub-atomic particle that gives everything mass. As more and more data come in from the Large Hadron Collider that straddles France and Switzerland, they think they've found it.
Scientists at the CERN's Large Hadron Collider are now certain they have found a Higgs boson particle. Known as "The God Particle," the once theoretical Higgs boson is the mechanism that gives mass to elementary objects, meaning that its existence helps explain the existence of virtually everything else.

Just one week ago, scientists said they were achingly close to confirming that last July's discovery at the Large Hadron Collider was in fact the Higgs boson, and just had to eliminate one more possibility. They apparently did, because the AP reports that CERN today announced that "it is clear...
Thousands of checks have scientists inching ever closer to confirming that last July's discovery at the Large Hadron Collider was in fact the Higgs boson, reports the AP. The researchers say there's still one possibility they want to eliminate before declaring they are 99.9% positive: that it's a graviton,...
Scientists have started to exclude some of the more exotic scenarios for the Higgs-like boson. The Higgs-like boson discovered in 2012 is looking more Higgs-like, scientists on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider said in presentations...Show More Summary
The latest updates from the Large Hadron Collider regarding details of the Higgs boson have so far been a yawn-fest. Physicists from around the world are convening this week and next in Italy at the annual Rencontres de Moriond conference...
The subatomic particle discovered last year at Europe's Large Hadron Collider is looking more and more like the fabled Higgs boson, the one fundamental piece that's been missing from the theory that governs particle physics. But at a widely anticipated conference in Italy, physi …
Not all that far above your head is a particle accelerator that would put the Large Hadron Collider to shame. There, charged particles, some carried in by the solar wind, some created by cosmic rays, whiz along in a complicated dance,...Show More Summary
Experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are set to present their latest results at the Moriond conference, which begins tomorrow in the Italian town of La Thuile, and runs until 16 March. Although all of the LHC experiments...Show More Summary
The universe may be finite. That what the science team at Europe’s Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator, have been thinking ever since they discovered the Higgs boson particle last year. And that could be bad news. Last week one of the team members, speaking at a science meeting in Boston, [...]
Thanks, Higgs boson: Looks like the particle's tiny mass is a signal that the universe will one day be erased by a vacuum replaced by another universe, the BBC reports. That is, if the Large Hadron collider really has spotted the Higgs boson. Calling their discovery "Higgs-like" for now, physicists...
A new international organization is born that will guide the development of a $7.78 billion particle accelerator that could be heir to the Large Hadron Collider. The two most advanced future particle physics collider projects, the International...Show More Summary
We may have survived he Large Hadron Collider, but the Higgs boson still has a trick up its sleeves. According to new findings on the "Higgs-like" particle discovered last year, the universe will end in a bubble of doom. "If you use all the physics that we know now, and we do what we hink is a straightforward calculation, it's bad news," Lykken said. Show More Summary
The largest singular experimental project in the world, the Large Hadron Collider, is so mind-bogglingly complex that even some of its more finite properties are only comprehended by the best physics geeks our planet has to offer. AShow More Summary
Remember that Higgs-like particle that scientists finally managed to pin down last year at the Large Hadron Collider? Well, it's proving to be a harbinger of bad news. According to Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist at the FermiShow More Summary
Guess what? The cosmos, like Victoria Jackson and life itself, is probably inherently unstable. Most of us probably already know that instinctively without needing the Large Hadron Collider to prove it.
On Feb. 14, 2013, the shift crew in the CERN Control Centre extracted the beams from the Large Hadron Collider, bringing the machine's first three-year running period to a successful conclusion. The LHC's first run has seen major advances...Show More Summary
