Exploring bleeding edge experiments, oddities, new and bizarre dicoveries, and fact-checking conspiracy theories since 2008. No question is out of bounds and no topic is too strange for a deep dive.
Unfortunately, the Higgs particle doesn't explain the origins of dark matter, sending cosmologists looking for new particles to help fill in the blanks.
We just found the Higgs boson, and already a few scientists think it might be responsible for destroying the universe on a random day in the unspecified future.
The existence of the Higgs boson has been confirmed and the Standard Model is upheld yet again. Now what?
It would be amazing for the LHC to find the Higgs boson. It would be even more interesting if it doesn't.
