    Recent evidence of a possible fifth force of nature0

    Scientists conducting an experiment at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) reported evidence of a violation of the Standard Model of subatomic particles, which might indicate the existence of a fifth fundamental force of nature. Let us explore what evidence they have and what it means. Our subatomic world so far Physicists classify matter

    Higgs Is Higgs, Last Year’s Triumph Justified0

    The particle found last year appears to really be the wanted Higgs boson. This massive machine is probably shut off for a while, because it seems to have served its purpose.  It turns out it really found the famous Higgs boson. Scientists at least say so after having analyzed 2,5 times more data than last

    New Particle Found, Consistent With Higgs Boson1

    This morning in a press conference in Geneva, scientists of the CERN-institute announced that they have found a new subatomic particle that is most likely the long-sought “Higgs boson”. According to the scientists, the chance that they’re wrong is less than one percent. Although CERN cannot confirm that the Higgs boson is actually found, the

    New Experiments Confirm It: Some Particles Move Faster than Light0

    In September, a bunch of scientists at CERN claimed that they had found particles that could travel faster than the speed of light. This particles, also known as neutrinos, could travel 730 km in 2.43 milliseconds. This means that these particles travel this distance 60 nanoseconds faster than light does. Since these groundbreaking results proved
