Higgs Boson, Understanding The Buzz

  The European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, will be holding a news seminar the morning of July 4 in order to announce new results from the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Based at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) these two experiments are searching for the elusive Higgs boson particle. Both of the research teams are

New Particle Discovered in the 'Big Bang Machine'

  “Telltale signs: The snapshot of a particle collision in the CMS detector shows decay products of a Xi_b^* baryon. Easily recognizable are, among other things, the two muons (red lines).” A new particle has been discovered in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator. The new particle is called the Xi_b^* baryon. It helps

Quest for 'God Particle' Will End for Fermilab this Fall

…And with it, our chance to beat the Europeans to the quantum punch: the confirmation of the Higgs Boson — the mysterious particle  that bestows  mass unto all other particles. It’s one of  physic’s biggest “prizes”, but, it seems that our Dept. of Energy couldn’t come up with the extra 35 million to keep the
