CERN Update: The Higgs Boson - Is it the God Particle?

http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... CERN/LHC Update: "The Higgs Boson - Is it the God Particle?" CERN confirms existence of new particle consistent with Higgs boson. Is the Higgs boson the long-sought "God Particle"? And what do scientists think about the metaphor "The God Particle"? The ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN presented their latest results in the search for the long-sought Higgs boson. Both experiments see strong indications for the presence of a new particle, which could be the Higgs boson, in the mass region around 126 gigaelectronvolts (GeV). --- Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism --- CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson "We now have more than double the data we had last year," said CERN Director for Research and Computing, Sergio Bertolucci, "that should be enough to see whether the trends we were seeing in the 2011 data are still there, or whether they've gone away. It's a very exciting time." If and when a new particle is discovered, ATLAS and CMS will need time to ascertain whether it is the long sought Higgs boson, the last missing ingredient of the Standard Model of particle physics, or whether it is a more exotic form of the boson that could open the door to new physics. "It's a bit like spotting a familiar face from afar," said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer, "sometimes you need closer inspection to find out whether it's really your best friend, or actually your best friend's twin." The Standard Model gives an extraordinarily precise picture of the matter that makes up all the visible universe, and the forces that govern its behaviour, but there are good reasons to believe that this is not the end of the story. For example, we know from observation that the visible universe is just 4% of what seems to be out there. "It's hard not to get excited by these results," said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci. " We stated last year that in 2012 we would either find a new Higgs-like particle or exclude the existence of the Standard Model Higgs. With all the necessary caution, it looks to me that we are at a branching point: the observation of this new particle indicates the path for the future towards a more detailed understanding of what we're seeing in the data." "We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature," said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer. "The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson opens the way to more detailed studies, requiring larger statistics, which will pin down the new particle's properties, and is likely to shed light on other mysteries of our universe." Positive identification of the new particle's characteristics will take considerable time and data. But whatever form the Higgs particle takes, our knowledge of the fundamental structure of matter is about to take a major step forward. • http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2012/PR17.12E.html --- Tags: "god particle" "higgs boson" "higgs particle" god particle higgs boson new higgs-like cern lhc cms atlas experiments physics standard model supersymmetry susy mass matter universe results videos .

Historic Milestone: CERN Discovers Higgs-like Boson

http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... New particle observed at LHC! CERN Physicists are sure they have found a boson particle -- but is it the long-sought Higgs boson of the Standard Model? The ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN presented their latest results in the search for the long-sought Higgs boson. Both experiments see strong indications for the presence of a new particle, which could be the Higgs boson, in the mass region around 126 gigaelectronvolts (GeV). --- Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism --- CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson At a seminar and a press conference held at CERN on 4 July 2012 as a curtain raiser to the year's major particle physics conference, ICHEP2012 in Melbourne, the ATLAS and CMS experiments presented their latest preliminary results in the search for the long sought Higgs particle. Both experiments observe a new particle in the mass region around 125-126 GeV. "We observe in our data clear signs of a new particle, at the level of 5 sigma, in the mass region around 126 GeV. The outstanding performance of the LHC and ATLAS and the huge efforts of many people have brought us to this exciting stage," said ATLAS experiment spokesperson Fabiola Gianotti, "but a little more time is needed to prepare these results for publication." "The results are preliminary but the 5 sigma signal at around 125 GeV we're seeing is dramatic. This is indeed a new particle. We know it must be a boson and it's the heaviest boson ever found," said CMS experiment spokesperson Joe Incandela. "The implications are very significant and it is precisely for this reason that we must be extremely diligent in all of our studies and cross-checks." "It's hard not to get excited by these results," said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci. " We stated last year that in 2012 we would either find a new Higgs-like particle or exclude the existence of the Standard Model Higgs. With all the necessary caution, it looks to me that we are at a branching point: the observation of this new particle indicates the path for the future towards a more detailed understanding of what we're seeing in the data." The results presented today are labelled preliminary. They are based on data collected in 2011 and 2012, with the 2012 data still under analysis. Publication of the analyses shown today is expected around the end of July. A more complete picture of today's observations will emerge later this year after the LHC provides the experiments with more data. The next step will be to determine the precise nature of the particle and its significance for our understanding of the universe. Are its properties as expected for the long-sought Higgs boson, the final missing ingredient in the Standard Model of particle physics? Or is it something more exotic? The Standard Model describes the fundamental particles from which we, and every visible thing in the universe, are made, and the forces acting between them. All the matter that we can see, however, appears to be no more than about 4% of the total. A more exotic version of the Higgs particle could be a bridge to understanding the 96% of the universe that remains obscure. "We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature," said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer. "The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson opens the way to more detailed studies, requiring larger statistics, which will pin down the new particle's properties, and is likely to shed light on other mysteries of our universe." Positive identification of the new particle's characteristics will take considerable time and data.

CERN 'Higgs Boson' Announcement: We Have Observed A New Particle

In the video dated July 4 2012, Joe Incandela, a spokesman for Cern, announces that scientists "have observed a new particle". "We have quite strong evidence that there's something there. Its properties are still going to take us a little bit of time. "But we can see that it decays to two photons, for example, which tells us it's a boson, it's a particle with integer spin. And we know its mass is roughly 100 times the mass of the proton. And this is very significant. This is the most massive such particle that exists, if we confirm all of this, which I think we will," Mr Incandela, the CMS Spokesperson says. "And this is very, very significant. It's something that may, in the end, be one of the biggest observations of any new new phenomena in our field in the last 30 or 40 years, going way back to the discovery of quarks, for example," he adds. The origin of mass has been fiercely debated for decades **Credit to the UK Telegraph for the amazing video

The Higgs boson

So it has finally been announced (4th July 2012) that the Higgs boson has been discovered but what is it? Almost 50 years ago Peter Higgs proposed the existence of the Higgs boson and since then scientists have been looking for it! At the cost of billions of pounds, it has finally been found. Was it worth all the effort? In this Horizon episode first broadcast on 9th January 2012, Physicists working at CERN explain what the Higgs boson is? Is it really the biggest scientific discovery for a hundred years? Prof Jim Al-Khalli presents this Horizon Special produced by the BBC. Should Professor Peter Higgs get knighted and receive the Nobel Prize? Is the nickname "The God Particle" misleading?

Free Higgs!

To celebrate the announcement of the discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs Boson at the LHC, I took to the streets with Vi Hart to give out free Higgs. Now giving out a subatomic particle, especially the Higgs, would have been incredibly difficult so instead we gave out hand-drawn cards of the Standard Model, our current best theory of all matter particles in the universe and their iteractions (now with Higgs!). We also offered a hug with an integer spin, usually 1 or 2 (and in rare cases 0). This is a way of showing others that you care about the Higgs Boson.

The LHC - The Large Hadron Collider ( L.H.C )

The Large Hadron Collider is the largest and most complex scientific instrument ever built and the highest energy particle accelerator in the world. The accelerator is located 100 m underground and runs through both French and Swiss territory. ( 27km circumference) Year 2008 September 10th, marks the culmination of 20 years of work by over 8000 scientists thousands of engineers, technicians and support staff from over 80 different countries. some critics say that this could create a black hole and suck up the entire world. but many say that even if a black hole is created it will vanish within a millionth of a second.. for more info follow these links.

There has been a lot of interest in the original mp3, lyrics, and vocals for remixing. You can find all that here: https://www.msu.edu/~mcalpin9/lhc_rap/largehadron.html There's also been interest in translation. You can get a subtitle-free version from Vimeo here (downloadable): http://www.vimeo.com/1730771 With backing track available here (with and without Hawking-style voice): http://barras.ws/rappin.html Go ahead and translate, rap it, and post it! Just give us a shout-out, and it's probably a good idea to include the following credits ;-) Images came from: particlephysics.ac.uk, space.com, the Institute of Physics, NASA, Symmetry, and Marvel I forgot Einstein Online, and they called me out: http://www.einstein-online.info And I forgot Physics World (dunno what I was thinking when I put together the extra dimensions bit). Steve Abel set me to rights (but made no demands): http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/print/403 The talented dancers doubled as camera people, with some work by Neil Dixon. Stock footage is CERN's. Will Barras is responsible for the killa beats: http://www.ling.ed.ac.uk/~s9527813/ And thanks to MC Hawking, who first thought of using computer-voice to bring Stephen Hawking to the world of rap :-) http://www.mchawking.com/ The rapper has a day job (we agree this is a good thing) as a science writer. http://www.katemcalpine.com They'll have a lot of data to sort. 15 million GB per year, actually.

CERN News - LHC to run at 4 TeV per beam in 2012

The LHC will run with a beam energy of 4 TeV this year, 0.5 TeV higher than in 2010 and 2011. This decision was taken by CERN management following the annual performance workshop held in Chamonix last week and a report delivered today by the external CERN Machine Advisory Committee (CMAC). It is accompanied by a strategy to optimise LHC running to deliver the maximum possible amount of data in 2012 before the LHC goes into a long shutdown to prepare for higher energy running. The data target for 2012 is 15 inverse femtobarns for ATLAS and CMS, three times higher than in 2011. Bunch spacing in the LHC will remain at 50 nanoseconds.

Uncovering the Universe: Latest news from the LHC

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is the most powerful particle collider ever built and has been described as the world's biggest science experiment. Designed to answer the unknowns in particle physics, including the reason for so little antimatter in the universe and the exact locations of dark matter and the missing Higgs particle, the LHC is capable of recreating the conditions that were in existence one fraction of a second after the Big Bang. Tara takes the stage at The Royal Institution to reveal what has been discovered at the LHC since its first year of operation. This event took place at the Ri on Wednesday 19 October 2011.

Dr. Tara Shears - The LHC: the world's largest experiment.

The LHC: or how the world's largest experiment can investigate matter's smallest constituents. Public lecture on 21 June 2007 at The Royal Society, London. Go here if you want to see the lecture with slides: http://royalsociety.tv/rsPlayer.aspx?presentationid=183 By Dr. Tara Shears, Royal Society University Research Fellow, University of Liverpool. Deep beneath the Swiss countryside, final touches are being made to the world's largest piece of scientific equipment the Large Hadron Collider (or LHC for short). The LHC is the most powerful particle accelerator ever built. It is capable of recreating the very energetic conditions last seen in the universe a billionth of a second after the Big Bang, and allows particle physicists to study the fundamental ingredients of matter that the universe was formed of at the time. Amazingly, it will do this 40 million times a second, and use enormous high tech experiments to record what happens. Why would we want to go to such lengths to explore the structure of matter? In this lecture, Tara Shears will discuss how the LHC will help scientists learn more about the nature of matter and expand the frontiers of our knowledge further than ever. Tara Shears is a particle physicist and Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool. Since obtaining her PhD in 1995 she has worked on experiments at CERN, the European Centre for Particle Physics, in Switzerland, and at Fermilab in America. Her research interests focus on the properties of bottom quarks and the light they may throw on new fundamental particles and interactions.

Large Hadron Collider - The Search For The Higgs FULL

THIS POST IS DUE TO TODAY'S NEWS (December 13, 2011) LINK: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16158374 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16116230 On November, 2007 the most complex scientific instrument ever built will be switched on. The Large Hadron Collider promises to recreate the conditions in the early universe. By revisiting the beginning of time, scientists hope to unravel some of the deepest secrets of our Universe. Within these first few moments the building blocks of the Universe were formed. The search for these fundamental particles has occupied scientists for decades but there remains one particle that has stubbornly refused to appear in any experiment. The Higgs Boson is so crucial to our understanding of the Universe that it has been dubbed the God particle. It explains how fundamental particles acquire mass, or as one scientist plainly states: "It is what makes stuff stuff..."
