The hunt for the source of dark matter is one of the most hotly anticipated searches of our time and the Higgs boson might be able to light the way to a possible dark matter discovery.
In a proposed experiment for the newly-recommissioned Large Hadron Collider, physicists want to focus on the Higgs boson for clues as to why the universe is filled with matter and not antimatter.
Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading →
Stephen Hawking warns that the Higgs boson, or 'god particle' could end the universe one day.
Physicists of one LHC experiment have announced tantalizing evidence that the Higgs doesn't only decay into other bosons; it also has the ability to decay into fermions. Continue reading →
It seems that at every turn, the Standard Model of physics reinforces its death choke around the Universe as we know it -- but are physicists beginning to see data that bucks this trend? Continue reading →
Large Hadron Collider scientists have detected an ultra-rare subatomic decay for the first time, a decay that is predicted by the Standard Model -- unfortunately, that's one hefty blow against supersymmetry. Continue reading →
Can the hunt for the Higgs boson finally be laid to rest? No -- physicists have only just begun. Continue reading →
