Scientists study rare, one-in-a-trillion heavy boson collisions happening inside the LHC.
Only a fraction of collision events that look like they produce a Higgs boson actually produce a Higgs boson. Luckily, it doesn’t matter.
Scientists now know the fate of the vast majority of all Higgs bosons produced in the LHC.
Physicists see top quarks and Higgs bosons emanating from the same collisions in new results from the Large Hadron Collider.
It doesn’t seem like collisions of particles with no mass should be able to produce the “mass-giving” boson, the Higgs. But every other second at the LHC, they do.
Are these mass-giving particles hanging out with dark matter?
The announcement on July 4 was just one part of the story. Take a peek behind the scenes of the discovery of the Higgs boson.
Four physicists discuss Higgs boson research since the discovery.
The Higgs appeared in the second run of the LHC about twice as fast as it did in the first.
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
The Higgs field gives mass to elementary particles, but most of our mass comes from somewhere else.
The Higgs doesn’t quite fit in with the other particles of the Standard Model of particle physics.
The CMS and ATLAS experiments combined forces to more precisely measure properties of the Higgs boson.
Physicists discovered one type of Higgs boson in 2012. Now they’re looking for more.
Take a tour of one of the most important rooms at CERN.
The CMS and ATLAS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider joined forces to make the most precise measurement of the mass of the Higgs boson yet.
