Pin It

Particle physicists are today digesting the news from yesterday's special seminar at CERN, where potential glimpses of the Higgs boson were revealed. Based on nearly all the data collected so far – the debris of some 500 trillion proton–proton collisions – the Large Hadron Collider's ATLAS and CMS experiments have now excluded the Higgs at pretty much all masses outside the narrow region between 115–130 GeV/c2 and 115–127 GeV/c2, respectively. The analyses represent a major reduction in the particle's possible hiding places compared with the situation just a few months ago.
