  • New results indicate that particle discovered at CERN is a Higgs boson March 14, 2013

    Geneva: At the Moriond Conference today, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) presented preliminary new results that further elucidate the particle discovered last year. Having analysed two and a half times more data than was available for the discovery announcement in July, they find that...
  • New data analysis indicates particle is Higgs Boson: CERN March 14, 2013

    Geneva: Physicists say they are now confident they have discovered a long-sought subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, says a look at all the data from 2012 shows that what they found last year was a version of what is popularly...
  • Evidence of 'God particle' found: CERN July 4, 2012

    Geneva: One of the two independent teams at the world's biggest atom smasher said Wednesday it has found strong evidence of a new subatomic particle that looks like the one believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape. Joe Incandela, leader of one of the teams known as...
  • Best evidence yet of God particle found: Scientists July 3, 2012

    Batavia: Physicists at a US laboratory said on Monday they have come tantalizingly close to proving the existence of the elusive subatomic Higgs boson often called the "God particle" because it may bring mass and order to the universe. The announcement by the Fermi National Accelerator Lab outside Chicago came...

  • Apocalypse now? | 'Big Bang' goes rap | Indian connection September 10, 2008

    Geneva: Scientists will launch an experiment in a tunnel deep beneath the FrenchSwiss border Wednesday, hoping to find evidence of extra dimensions, invisible ''dark matter,'' and an elusive particle called the ''Higgs boson.'' And although leading physicists such as Stephen Hawking say the atomsmashing experiment will be absolutely safe, some skeptics...
  • Doommongers worry: end of world on Big Bang test day September 7, 2008

    London: If critics are to be believed, the end of the universe will begin coming Wednesday when a Welsh miner's son launches the world's biggest scientific experiment to know how the universe was born. The wellknown Welshman physicist, Lyn Evans, dubbed Evans the Atom, will this week switch on a giant...
  • Bid to crack universe secrets in September August 8, 2008

    Geneva: The world's most powerful particle accelerator, aimed at unlocking secrets of the universe, will be launched on September 10, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) said on Thursday. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), housed in an underground tunnel 27 kilometres (17 miles) in circumference, will recreate conditions just...
