4 July 2012 BBC News [The BBC did not refer to the 'God Particle' - this is quite interesting in itself.] Scientists at CERN the world's largest particle physics laboratory have made one of the most important scientific breakthroughs of modern times. Physicists believe they have finally identified the Particle known as the Higgs Boson. It should be an enormous step towards explaining how atoms have mass and how the universe is bound together. It's a discovery about the fabric of the universe that will go down as one of the greatest in science. Researchers have found the key to matter [Beautiful] in this circular tunnel, a new kind of particle. As predicted by Peter Higgs, a British scientist at Edinburgh University. Scientists hunted for the Higgs Boson by firing particles through the tunnel and forcing them to collide [Very interesting - the key is here] to reveal their inner workings. This is about a very basic quest. To understand what the universe is made of how from empty space we get the planets and us [Amazing - there is still no unified theory of physics...] This involves digging into atoms, deeper and deeper to reveal the incredibly small parts inside them so tiny it's not clear how they have any kind of substance. That's where the Higgs Boson comes in - a particle that acts like glue [Beautiful] giving other particles mass. Professor Brian Cox - "It's like saying we want to explore that ocean but we don't know where the land is we want to explore. WE'VE NOW ...
His first paper was rejected by a journal, while other scientists accused him and his colleagues of failing to grasp the basic principles of physics. Despite the sleights Prof Higgs, at the time an 34-year-old physicist at Edinburgh University, was convinced his idea was right although he never envisaged being able to prove it. Yesterday, 48 years on, his radical concept was finally proved correct by an international team of physicists at the Cern laboratory using a £6 billion piece of equipment designed to uncover the secrets of the Universe. Announcing the latest results from the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, scientists from confirmed they had discovered a new particle bearing all the hallmarks of a Higgs Boson. The Higgs Boson helps to explain how fundamental particles gain their mass - a property which allows them to bind together and form stars and planets rather than whizzing around the universe at the speed of light. Prof Higgs, 83, who travelled to Switerland to witness the landmark announcement first-hand, was visibly moved as the presentation was rounded off to tumultuous applause from a wildly excited audience, some of whom had waited overnight to secure their seats. Choking back tears, he said: "I would like to add my congratulations to everyone involved in this achievement. It's really an incredible thing that it's happened in my lifetime." His response was characteristically modest. Professor Higgs has repeatedly resisted requests for interviews and ...

Scientists have discovered a subatomic particle that is consistent with the Higgs boson particle that gives matter mass, Cern, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, announced today.
4th of July 2012, this is the day the Higgs Boson was discovered by the human race. After 45 years of searching, Peter Higgs can now announce to the world how he has seen the culmination of his life's work finally blossom into a tangible result, a result which has brought an all too human emotion to this triumph. The Higgs field and resulting Higgs boson are a vital part of the Electroweak Interaction and the Standard Model of particle physics as a whole. In the absence of the Higgs field, when a Local Gauge is applied to the Lagrangian of the Electroweak Interaction we are left with force-carrying bosons that are mass-less, the W and Z Bosons. This would be okay for the Photon as it has no mass however the W and Z bosons are massive particles, with masses of ~80GeV and ~90GeV respectively. The Higgs mechanism was the most favoured explanation for solving this problem. In brief, the Higgs field is introduced to 'break' the symmetry of the Electroweak theory, which allows its bosons to have mass while at the same time conserving the principles of the standard model. This Higgs mechanism is important as it not only explains how the heavy bosons become massive but also provides an explanation as to how the fermions come to have mass. The Mechanism of the interaction is simple to understand. Where the Electroweak Interaction couples to electric and weak (or flavour) charges and the Strong Interaction couples to colour charge, the Higgs interaction couples to mass. The process ...
After a quest spanning nearly half a century, physicists have said they had found a new sub-atomic particle consistent with the Higgs boson which is believed to confer mass. Rousing cheers and a standing ovation broke out at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) on Wednesday after scientists presented data in their long search for the mysterious particle. Al Jazeera's Cath Turner reports on what it all means.

CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson. --- Please subscribe to Science & Reason: • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com --- "It's hard not to get excited by these results," said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci. "We stated last year that in 2012 we would either find a new Higgs-like particle or exclude the existence of the Standard Model Higgs. With all the necessary caution, it looks to me that we are at a branching point: the observation of this new particle indicates the path for the future towards a more detailed understanding of what we're seeing in the data." The results presented today are labelled preliminary. They are based on data collected in 2011 and 2012, with the 2012 data still under analysis. Publication of the analyses shown today is expected around the end of July. A more complete picture of today's observations will emerge later this year after the LHC provides the experiments with more data. The next step will be to determine the precise nature of the particle and its significance for our understanding of the universe. Are its properties as expected for the long-sought Higgs boson, the final missing ingredient in the Standard Model of particle physics? Or is it something more exotic? The Standard Model describes the fundamental particles from which we, and every visible ...

BREAKING NEWS: A VIDEO from Europe's CERN physics lab, apparently posted mistakenly on the eve of an announcement on the elusive "God Particle," reveals that a new subatomic particle has been observed in the relevant range. The video, already leaked, has been relocated to a password-protected part of the CERN Web site. Mr Incandela, the CERN spokesman, describes the findings as "one of the biggest discoveries..." before correcting himself to add "... or observations of any new phenomena in our field in the last 30 or 40 years." Finding the Higgs boson would vindicate the so-called Standard Model of physics, a theory that was developed in the early 1970s that says the universe is made from 12 particles that provide the building blocks for all matter.
CERN, The European Organization for Nuclear Research made a ground-breaking announcement that Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have discovered a new sub-atomic particle consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson. Known as the elusive "God particle", as it gives mass to all other particles in the universe. The search for the Higgs Boson has been going on for decades at a cost of billions of pounds. Scientists have now announced they have seen the best evidence yet that it exists. Here Professor John Ellis, explained what it is. "What it is? It's the last piece in the 'standard model.' The Standard Model describes all the matter that we can see in the universe, you, me, the planet, the stars, galaxies, all that matter is described by the standard model. That description only makes sense if a Higgs Boson exists or something very similar to it." Here is the large Hadron Collider in the CERN underground lab which was used to hunt the Higgs Boson since 1984. Professor Ellis then explains just what a ground-breaking discovery this is. "So it's very exciting that finally, after so many years of looking and waiting and searching, we may finally discover the missing link that really makes our description of the matter in the universe sensible. Maybe it's the Higgs Boson, maybe it's not Higgs Boson, but finally, I think, we gonna start seeing the boson." Written and presented by Ann Salter
Scientists at Cern, the Geneva-based European laboratory for particle physics, are revealing their latest findings in their search for the Higgs boson.

In the video dated July 4 2012, Joe Incandela, a spokesman for Cern, announces that scientists "have observed a new particle". "We have quite strong evidence that there's something there. Its properties are still going to take us a little bit of time. "But we can see that it decays to two photons, for example, which tells us it's a boson, it's a particle with integer spin. And we know its mass is roughly 100 times the mass of the proton. And this is very significant. This is the most massive such particle that exists, if we confirm all of this, which I think we will," Mr Incandela, the CMS Spokesperson says. "And this is very, very significant. It's something that may, in the end, be one of the biggest observations of any new new phenomena in our field in the last 30 or 40 years, going way back to the discovery of quarks, for example," he adds. The origin of mass has been fiercely debated for decades **Credit to the UK Telegraph for the amazing video

Scientists hunting the elusive subatomic "Higgs" particle will unveil findings on Wednesday that take them nearer to understanding how the Big Bang at the dawn of time gave rise to stars, planets and even life. Physicists who have been smashing particles together at near light-speed at the CERN laboratory near Geneva have already seen tantalizing glimpses of the "Higgs boson", the missing piece of the fundamental theory of physics known as the Standard Model. The world of science now awaits a mass of evidence big enough to be deemed a formal discovery. The secrecy surrounding Wednesday's announcement has fuelled speculation that nearly 40 years of research have reached a climax. CERN accidentally released a video on its website briefly overnight announcing a "new particle" had been observed, but CERN representatives declined to comment on whether that was what would be announced later in the day. "This video was released due to a technical glitch on our side here at CERN. The final results have not yet been released," CERN press officer Renilde Vanden Broeck said in Melbourne. She said the organization had prepared several videos for a range of outcomes for Wednesday's announcement. A CERN physicist who knows what will be announced said the discovery was not necessarily definitive. "This is not a black and white answer which you should expect. This is an important stepping stone," Peter Jenni, former spokesman for the ATLAS collaboration, one part of the CERN research ...
Following the CERN announcement, Theoretical physicist Garrett Lisi explains the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle by CERN scientists. Previously, LHC results have strongly signaled the existence of a Higgs with a mass of 125 gigaelectronvolts (GeV), or roughly 125 times more massive than the proton.

Scientists at Cern will announce that the elusive Higgs boson 'God Particle' has been found at a press conference next week, it is believed. Five leading theoretical physicists have been invited to the event on Wednesday - sparking speculation that the particle has been discovered. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are expected to say they are 99.99 per cent certain it has been found - which is known as 'four sigma' level. Peter Higgs, the Edinburgh University emeritus professor of physics that the particle is named after, is among those who have been called to the press conference in Switzerland. The management at Cern want the two teams of scientists to reach the 'five sigma' level of certainty with their results - so they are 99.99995 per cent sure - such is the significance of the results. Tom Kibble, 79, the emeritus professor of physics at Imperial College London, has also been invited but is unable to attend. He told the Sunday Times: 'My guess is that is must be a pretty positive result for them to be asking us out there.' The Higgs boson is regarded as the key to understanding the universe. Physicists say its job is to give the particles that make up atoms their mass. Without this mass, these particles would zip though the cosmos at the speed of light, unable to bind together to form the atoms that make up everything in the universe, from planets to people. The collider, housed in an 18-mile tunnel buried deep underground near the French-Swiss border ...
This could be a huge week for the scientific world. Physicists at a US laboratory claim to have come extremely close to proving the existence of the elusive subatomic Higgs boson, better known as the 'God particle,' finally bringing order and mass to the universe. The announcement from Fermilab comes before what is expected to be a huge reveal from CERN confirming the particle's existence. Now, remember, CERN houses the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the 10 billion dollar Large Hadron Collider. Fermilab scientists found hints of the Higgs, based on data gathered over the course of a decade, but the evidence fell short of scientific proof. The Higgs field is thought to impart mass to some particles and not to others, and proving its existence would validate the Standard Model, and bring us one step closer to understanding the origins of our universe. Some physicists remain cautious about the supposed findings, but I know I'm not alone when I say, I hope they found it.
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva have been looking for a mysterious particle called the Higgs Boson. Scientific American editor George Musser explains why the Higgs is so important to science and to our very existence.

Watch: youtube.com slatev.com Follow twitter.com facebook.com Could this be the week scientists finally prove the existence of the one true God particle? Lead researchers at CERN will reportedly hold a press conference this week to confirm the existence of the elusive Higgs boson particle. The Higgs boson particle is thought to give elementary particles like quarks and electrons mass, and it's confirmed existence may lead to a reevaluation of many theorems in the field of physics. Rumor has it scientists are 99.99-percent sure of their discovery, which could be the biggest science news in decades. Until the press conference on July 4th, we'll have to wait to see if the God particle has finally been scientifically proven, or if believing in it's existence remains just a scientific act of faith.
