BBC - Stephen Hawking discusses discovery of Higgs boson particle....


Reigning in chaos in particle colliders yields big results A method to correct tiny defects in the LHC's superconducting magnets (example shown above) was crucial to the discovery of the Higgs boson, which was announced in 2012.


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.


This track is an example of simulated data modelled for the ATLAS detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The Higgs boson is produced in the collision of 2 protons & quickly decays into 4 muons, a type of heavy electron that is not absorbed by the detector. The tracks of the muons are in yellow. The newest findings indicate that not only is the particle probably the Higgs boson, but it is the basic version predicted by the dominant theory of particle physics, the Standard Model.

Popular physics theory running out of hiding places

Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider detected one of the rarest particle decays seen in nature. The finding deals a blow to the theory of physics known as supersymmetry, or SUSY, which gained popularity as a way to explain some of the inconsistencies in the traditional theory of subatomic physics known as the Standard Model. If supersymmetry is not an explanation for dark matter, then theorists will have to find alternative ideas to explain those inconsistencies in the Standard Model.
