    Geneva: It has been fancifully dubbed the angel of creation and, to the particular scorn of physicists, the God particle. The Higgs Boson is said to have appeared out of the chaos of the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago and turned the flying debris from that primeval explosion into galaxies,...
  • Will find God Particle by the yearend: Scientists June 4, 2012

    London: Scientists say they may be able to prove by the end of the year that the elusive Higgs Boson, or the particle that is responsible for giving mass to the universe, really exists. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and highestenergy particle accelerator, will be switched off at...
  • Large Hadron Collider, a time machine? March 17, 2011

    Washington: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest atom smasher that started regular operations last year, could be the first machine capable of causing matter to travel backwards in time. "Our theory is a long shot," admitted Tom Weiler, physics professor at Vanderbilt University, "but it doesn't violate any laws...
