  • So close to the God particle: Scientists say 'stay tuned'

     
    Physicists have detected hints of the long-sought Higgs boson but have not yet amassed enough data for definitive proof of discovery of the so-called God particle, scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, said Tuesda...
  • The quest for the 'God particle': Tiny matter, big cliffhanger

     
    God particle quest: It’s a cliffhanger as scientists say they haven’t seen the Higgs boson, or God particle -- yet...
  • Large Hadron Collider made with Legos, and other geeky creations

     
    Using Legos, Sascha Mehlhase, a physicist based in Copenhagen, has built a 1:50 scale replica of the ATLAS detector, which is part of the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest and highest-energy particle accelerator....
  • Neutrinos faster than the speed of light? Not so fast ...

     
    Back in September, a group of physicists working at the OPERA experiment at Italy’s Gran Sasso Laboratory astounded the scientific world by clocking neutrinos, a type of subatomic particle, that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light. It...
  • Higgs boson: 'God particle' exists but what is it exactly?

     
    The Higgs boson is just how the universe was formed -- no big deal....
  • Fine line

     
    Not only do the electrons smash into each other, they have struck the physicists' funny bone. As it says (in the New York Times)... "It has led to a joke in physics circles now: The the Higgs boson (particle) has......

  • Quarks and quantum quirks

    Quarks and quantum quirks
    While reading a book on contemporary physics some time ago, I realized that attempting to comprehend it was like trying to floss the teeth of a flea. Underwater. While drunk. With broken fingers. And blindfolded. I managed to finish the book, but the...
  • The God Squad: The real question is, who created the God Particle?

    Question: Reportedly, scientists in Switzerland have announced the key discovery to authenticate the theory of all matter: the "God Particle." New discoveries, in turn, create new analysis of the intelligent design of creation, and so the wheel of science...
  • What college tuition buys

    What college tuition buys
    Along with many of the nation's million and a half professors, I saw the recent apparent discovery of the Higgs boson particle as a great moment not only for science but for American education as well. Somehow, lost in the discussion of the discovery...
  • Hopkins, Maryland help in worldwide hunt for elusive Higgs boson

    Hopkins, Maryland help in worldwide hunt for elusive Higgs boson
    Researchers from Hopkins and Maryland are among thousands of scientists engaged in the hunt for the Higgs boson, known popularly as the "God particle." Proof of its existence would answer fundamental questions about the nature of our existence....
