Scientists predicted that sighting of the first strong signs of a particle vital to support Einstein`s ideas on the working of the universe will be reported Tuesday.
Scientists at the world`s largest atom smasher have new data that shows with greater certainty where to find a long-sought theoretical particle that would help explain the origins of the universe.
Searches for the Higgs in CERN`s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the now-closed Tevatron at the US Fermilab have ranged up to 476 GeV.
An international team of scientists in Italy studying the same neutrino particles colleagues say appear to have travelled faster than light rejected the startling finding this weekend.
The chances have risen that Einstein was wrong about a fundamental law of the universe.
The upgrade will enable the operators to carry out up to 10 times as many collisions.
According to Einstein, the cosmic speed limit is 186,282 miles per second - the speed of light.
President Pratibha Patil on Saturday visited the prestigious France-based European Organisation for Nuclear Research, commonly known as CERN.
Albert Einstein`s 1905 theory of relativity is one of the most fundamental pillars of physics but now scientists say his conclusion that nothing can travel
faster than light could be proven wrong.
Scientists at the world`s largest physics lab say they have clocked subatomic particles traveling faster than light. If that`s true, it would break — if not severely twist — a fundamental pillar of physics.
Called a quark gluon plasma, it`s a state of matter that existed in the milliseconds after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.
The achievement is a significant improvement on earlier attempts to trap antihydrogen, which like all antimatter has a tendency to disappear before scientists have time to examine it.
Physicists believe that by the end of 2012 they will be able to determine whether Higgs boson exists or not.
Experts have brushed aside speculation about a dramatic finding by a group of researchers at the LHC.
Scientists made a key advance in their program to unveil mysteries of the universe.
The associate membership will cost USD 9.68 million for India but it will open gates for Indian hi-tech companies.
Scientists at CERN said they had trapped dozens of hydrogen `antimatter` atoms.
Scientists at the world`s biggest atom smasher have discovered a previously unobserved phenomenon.
CERN however said its flagship "Big Bang" machine will mainly be unaffected.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC),has produced a record-breaking particle collision rate.
