    Seeking the "God particle" -- books on the Higgs boson
    Thousands of scientists around the world are hunting feverishly for the Higgs boson, a hypothesized subatomic building block that has been called the "God particle." And today, the groups announced they had come closer to identifying it, but were likely a...
  • From Nepal to Jlab: one scientist's journey

    Jefferson Lab in Newport News can, at times, feel like a United Nations meeting — scientists from Italy, Chile, Japan and dozens more countries frequent the nuclear physics research center. Pashupati Dhakal stands out among the international crowd....
  • Faster than light? Research will benefit America in ways we can't foresee

    The news from the European Institute for Particle Physics is that Albert Einstein may have been wrong ("Faster than light", Sept. 23). The speed of light may not be insurmountable, and everything we think we know about the universe may be wrong. Of...
