Higgs Boson: Caught or Not?
Simulated traces of Higgs boson

CERN scientists have received experimental evidence of possible existence of Higgs boson, the particle responsible for mass of all existing matter, according to physics.

Experiments on Large Hadron Collider, a giant underground particle accelerator, constructed for hunting Higgs boson, generated collisions of 18 trillion protons with speed, close to speed of light. The study resulted in generation of about 60 elementary particles with mass of 143 gigaelectronvolt, which can possibly be Higgs bosons.

      However, CERN scientists prefer being extremely careful in their predictions and believe than additional studies should confirm whether elusive particle really exists. Higgs boson was predicted to exist in theory, and no one still managed to prove this.
