After an intermittent short-circuit put a dent in scientists' plans, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) finally began its powerful restart after a 2-year shutdown, officials said.
After being shut down for two years, a short-circuit has stalled the much-anticipated restart of CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the particle smashing machine that famously discovered the Higgs boson, officials announced Wednesday.
Homer Simpson may appear to be a simple-minded cartoon character who only knows how to eat donuts and drink beer, but these must actually be good brain fuel. It turns out he discovered the famous Higgs boson particle more than a decade before scientists did.
Scientists have re-discovered the famous Higgs boson, the "God particle" believed to be responsible for all the mass in the Universe, using superconductors, researchers announced Thursday.
Scientists at CERN have literally created the sound of science after they converted data from the Higgs boson, the particle thought to explain how other particles get their mass, into a musical masterpiece.
The famed Higgs boson, the particle that makes up all matter, supposedly should have made our Universe collapse right after the Big Bang, according to British cosmologists.
In a recent scientific breakthrough, researchers at CERN laboratory in Geneva have succeeded in finding the first evidence of the direct decay of the Higgs boson particle into fermions, a "strong indication" that the particle discovered in 2012 is indeed the Higgs boson.
