Maybe the "God particle" has undiscovered siblings. Maybe dark matter can be detected. After a two-year hiatus, physicists hope they might find the answers.
The European particle accelerator takes an important step in the second phase of its hunt for more Higgs bosons, dark matter and other mysteries of the universe.
The prestigious award goes to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs, who a half-century ago independently proposed what became the Higgs boson, discovered in 2012.
Scientists at CERN say they've almost certainly located the elusive particle, which would confirm the standard model of physics. The evidence is "very strong, very solid."
Researchers can't say for certain that a particle they discovered is the so-called "God particle," but the information they have "strongly indicates" it is.
A Fermilab theoretical physicist suggests that qualities of the "God particle" show an "alternate" universe could easily "spread out and destroy us."
Made by a PhD student and set in CERN, Switzerland, Decay is a full length zombie film that you can download for free.
The scientists already did all the hard work. Now you can just sit back and enjoy the Higgs boson in wristwatch form.
Composer and particle physicist Domenico Vicinanza has converted Higgs particle data to music.
