That’s the rumor, anyway. Here’s Peter Woit of Columbia University: This morning’s rumors are a 3.5 sigma 126 GeV excess at ATLAS in the ATLAS-only combination, and 2.5 sigma at 124 GeV for CMS. Heuer’s message to all CERN personnel … Continue reading
The Higgs boson, the hypothesized “God particle,” is, according to the Standard Model of physics, why there is mass in the universe. And, in the Los Angeles Times today, physicist Robert Cousins offers a super-clear explanation for why scientists are working … Continue reading

In September, 2008, the CERN Large Hadron Collider was slated to fully power up, but there were glitches that have stalled (until November of 2009) its search for the Higgs boson (the particle/field responsible for making mass, and thus matter, … Continue reading
