Higgs boson – one step closer?
December 13, 2011 |
As a physicist, I’m excited about a big announcement coming from CERN this afternoon. Science Museum sources agree with others that scientists will say they are one step closer to finding the Higgs boson – the missing link in particle physics.
It’s expected that particle detectors have picked up a signal that could be the Higgs boson. The results will need to be analysed and repeated before scientists can announce with certainty that they’ve spotted the Higgs boson – the particle that gives mass. Heavy!
We interviewed the man who put the ‘Higgs’ in the Higgs boson – Peter Higgs. Follow the link to see what he has to say about CERN’s impending discovery.
