Explore Higgs Particle, Boson Particle, and more!

CERN announced that it had spotted a Higgs boson-like particle on July 4, 2012. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), apart from similar colliders around the world, has continued running experiments to gather more data on the elusive particle.

10 top scientists whose work made a big difference in 2012

This track is an example of simulated data modelled for the ATLAS detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The Higgs boson is suppedly produced in the collision of two protons at 14 TeV and quickly decays into four muons, a type of heavy electron that is not absorbed by the detector. The tracks of the muons are shown in yellow.
