Thursday, 5th July 2012 - Cern, the Higgs Boson and a whole lot of Data

Incredible Technology: How Atom Smashers Work - The ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider studies heavy-ion collisions in search of a quark-gluon soup similar to the state of the early universe.

Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider reveal that mounds of data did not support the possibility of a new particle.     "If real, the new particle would have opened a crack between the known and the unknown, affording a glimpse of quantum secrets undreamed of even by Einstein."

The first half of the Compact Muon Solenoid inner tracker barrel is seen in this image consisting of three layers of silicon modules which will be placed at the center of the CMS experiment. Laying close to the interaction point of the 14 TeV proton-proton collisions, the silicon used here must be able to survive high doses of radiation and a powerful magnetic field without damage.

The Large Hadron Collider may have found a new form of matter: Scientists have discovered an elusive particle that may be an example of a tetraquark, an entirely new form of matter.

NYTimes makes valiant effort to explain Higgs Boson Particle. CERN physicists search for Physics' Holy Grail.

Few people without PhDs ever set foot inside CERN's (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) lab in Geneva, Switzerland, home of the Large Hadron C

Tour CERN and the Large Hadron Collider with Google Street View

Scientists at the High Energy Physics Group (HEP) of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg predict the existence of a new boson that might aid in the understanding of Dark Matter in the Universe.
