Physicists at CERN have discovered new evidence supporting the existence of the Higgs boson, which seems to behave exactly as the Standard Model predicted it would. So what's left for particle physics to uncover?
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.
Higgs boson: Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter Higgs of Britain won the 2013 Nobel Prize in physics for their work on how subatomic particles acquire mass. Their theory was confirmed last year by the discovery of the the Higgs boson, at CERN.
'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 discovery of a new particle thought to be the elusive Higgs boson represents the culmination of nearly 50 years of research, and completes a theory about how the most basic constituents of matter interact with each other.
