The Higgs field is (thought to be) responsible for differing mass of elementary particles
Mind-Blowing New Theory Connects Black Holes, Dark Matter, and Gravitational Waves
The past few years have been incredible for physics discoveries. Scientists spotted the Higgs boson, a particle they’d been hunting for almost 50 years, in 2012, and gravitational waves, which were theorized 100 years ago, in 2016. This year, they’re slated to take a picture of a black hole. So, thought some theorists, why not combine all of the craziest physics ideas into one, a physics turducken? What if we, say, try to spot the dark matter radiating off of black holes through their…
Scientists at the giant atom smashing facility at CERN announced the discovery of a subatomic particle that seems like a close match to the Higgs Boson, thought to be responsible for giving all the stuff in the universe its mass. Now CERN's scientists are preparing to restart the history-making collider, hoping to find the next great discovery. 60 min. http://ccsp.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/hppl/search/results?qu=big+bang+machine&qf=ITEMCAT3%09Format%091%3ADVD%09DVD&lm=HPLIBRARY&dt=list
The mass of the Higgs boson particle, possibly uncovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, may mean doom for our universe. Here, proton-proton collisions at the LHC showing events consistent with the Higgs.
