On Tuesday, Peter Higgs, of the United Kingdom, and François Englert, of Belgium, were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for theorizing how particles obtain mass in separate papers published in 1964. Englert, 80, and his colleague Robert Brout, who died in 2011, were actually first to describe the […]
Early Tuesday morning, the Royal Swedish Academy of Science awarded this year’s Nobel Prize in Physicsto two theoretical physicists — Peter Higgs and François Englert — who each independently predicted the existence of the Higgs boson in 1964. The Higgs boson is impossibly difficult to explain. But the fact of […]

[credit provider=”CERN” url=”http://public.web.cern.ch/public/”] The Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, is a humongous scientific instrument that lives at CERN, the European lab for particle physics in Geneva, Switzerland. It runs 17 miles in a giant circle underground.
[credit provider=”CERN” url=”http://www.livescience.com/25599-large-hadron-collider-increases-efficiency.html”] The Large Hadron Collider is working more efficiently, physicists announced today, with more particles than ever before crammed into the particle accelerator’s beams.Scientists successfully halved the space between the bunches of protons that fly through the LHC in sprays called beams.
[credit provider=”CERN” url=”http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1459500″] AS DISCOVERIES go, that of the Higgs boson is as big as they get. Much of modern physics hinges on the particle, first predicted 48 years ago by Peter Higgs, a Briton, and independently by two other teams of theorists, and finally observed earlier this year at […]
In early July, scientists at the European centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced, with 99.99997 per cent certainty, that they had found a Higgs boson, or “God particle.”The discovery of the subatomic particle, which explains why everything has mass, is monumental because it confirms that the Universe works how scientists think it […]
[credit provider=”CERN” url=”http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1459500″] New results coming from the Large Hadron Collider suggest that the hunt for the Higgs Boson, the particle that gives matter mass and holds the physical fabric of the universe together, really is over.One Higgs-hunting team at CERN on the Swiss-French border reports a “5.9 sigma” levels […]
Scientists at the European centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva were cheered like rock stars on July 4 when they formally announced that they had almost certainly nabbed the biggest and most elusive catch in modern physics: the Higgs boson.Dubbed the “God particle,” the Higgs boson is “the missing cornerstone […]
Big announcement in the science world today from Swiss research lab CERN regarding the so-called ‘God Particle.’
LONDON, UK – A French court has sentenced an Algerian-born nuclear physicist at the prestigious CERN laboratory to five years in jail for plotting terrorist attacks.
[credit provider=”AP”] Mariastella Gelmini, Italian minister of Education and Scientific Research, has issued a statement on the recent findings from CERN that called into question the theory of relativity.Unfortunately, members of the scientific community have taken issue with the statement for its factual errors and odd tone.
[credit provider=”wikipedia commons”] CERN stunned the world when it announced last week it had clocked neutrinos moving between CERN labs in Switzerland and San Grass, Italy faster than the speed of light.Since then physicists have been busy running calculations to confirm the findings, while also looking at data from 2007.

/2959726725/”] Einstein’s theory of relativity maintains that nothing in the universe can exceed the speed of light, and today that theory was called into question for the first time.Scientists at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy claim they have caught subatomic particles exceeding the speed […]
