Stephen Hawking says the next big physics discovery could be supersymmetry, the theory that subatomic particles have "superpartner" particles. Stephen Hawking lost a $100 bet that Higgs boson wouldn't be found.
The discovery of the Higgs boson greatly furthers our understanding of the fundamental constituents of matter, but some subatomic puzzle pieces still remain. Here are five types of bizarre particles that could turn up in atom-smashing experiments.
It's a Higgs boson!! Now what? After confirming that the particle discovered last July really is a Higgs boson, the Large Hadron Collider is ready to look for other universes, figure out dark matter, recreate the Big Bang, or find something totally unexpected.
'God Particle': Physicists announced Thursday that they have confirmed the existence of the so-called God Particle – a term disliked by physicists and theologians alike. Here are six of the biggest consequences of this discovery.
The winter solstice was celebrated at Stonehenge in England – and New Hampshire – Friday morning, Dec. 21, 2012. In Pennsylvania, atheists marked the winter solstice by hanging a banner next to a nativity scene.
