Physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, say that they have very strong evidence for the existence of the Higgs boson, a particle that, if it exists, would help explain why matter has mass.
Researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research say that they are closer than ever to discovering the elusive, Higgs boson, a particle theorized to be responsible for giving matter the property of mass.
Italy's National Institute of Nuclear Physics said Friday that Antonio Ereditato had stepped down from the leadership of the OPERA experiment, whose measurements on the speed of neutrinos were widely questioned when they were announced in September.
Higgs boson: The hunt for the Higgs boson, the so-called God Particle, continues. But in a study released today, scientists say they're getting closer to proving the existence of Higgs boson, but the image is 'fuzzy.'
