Scientists are switching to the Dark Side as they prepare to ramp up the power at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). After
A wealth of new data has made scientists even more confident that the elusive "God particle" is in their grasp. The sub-atomic
Professor Peter Higgs, who gave his name to the "God particle", which scientists may have discovered this year, has been
Obsession is a word that can be readily associated with physicists, probably more than any other species of scientists. Physics is one of the oldest disciplines that mankind has wrestled with, in our quest to understand this universe and us in it.
On 4 July the CERN institute announced a discovery that would put an end to something that has been bugging scientists for a while; enough to warrant a five-decade search, millions of man hours and billions of euros worth of support. Their struggle not only resolves one of science's most elusive mysteries, but also contains important lessons on how Europe can shake off its economic lethargy.
The Higgs Boson - the particle which gives other particles mass - was discovered at Cern last week… wasn't it? Well, at least
As the announcement was made, the scientists present broke into thunderous, spontaneous applause The two experiments were
