Large Hadron Collider may have detected mysterious new particle


At the start of December a rumor swirled around the Internet and physics lab coffee rooms that researchers at the Large Hadron Collider had spotted a new particle. After a three-year drought that followed the discovery of the Higgs boson, could this be the first sign of new physics that particle physicists have all been desperately hoping for?

Researchers working on the LHC experiments remained tight-lipped until December 14 when physicists packed out CERN's main auditorium to hear presentations from the scientists working on CMS and ATLAS experiments, the two gargantuan particle detectors that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. Even watching the online webcast, the excitement was palpable. Read more...
