First hint of the Higgs boson particle

Illustration of a proton-proton collision which might have produced a Higgs particle, recorded at the ATLAS detector. Shortly after its emergence, the Higgs boson converts into four particles, which can be found in the detector. (ill.: ATLAS Experiment)

Particle physicists at Mainz University are excited: 50 years after its prediction, the Higgs boson gradually takes shape Continue reading “First hint of the Higgs boson particle” »  More...
