Caltech's Mark Wise on why researchers are on the chase for this elusive subatomic particle.
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.
The Large Hadron Collider detected events that could pin down the mass of the elusive subatomic particle, but there's still plenty of uncertainty.
Rumors are flying about an update tomorrow on the search for the long-sought Higgs boson at Europe's Large Hadron Collider.
With the Large Hadron Collider experiments under way, physicists are getting new data to anchor their theories.
The Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator has moved rapidly from tentative operation to scientific results, researchers say at a Paris conference.
Squeezing more bunches of protons onto the particle accelerator's beams increases the data-gathering rate--and the odds the Higgs boson will turn up at CERN.
We interview one of the physicists looking for the Higgs boson at CERN. He talks to us about what it's like working at the geekiest place on Earth -- stand by for science!
