Cofty, was that you, well go back to college mate. Return your degree if
they gave you one, since you can’t understand commonality besides I’m not your
mother to get hostile with me. Smart people yeah right!!!!!!!!!
The elusive Higgs boson, the
so-called "God particle," may not have been discovered despite claims
of it being detected, some scientists are saying.
Particle physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research
announced 2 years ago they had discovered the Higgs particle, considered the
foundation particle in the Standard Model of Particle physics, and a Nobel
Prize was awarded to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert for their work on the
theory of the Higgs boson.
Now, though, researchers at the University of Southern Denmark's Center for
Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology suggest that while the CERN
scientists did discover a unique new particle, there's no conclusive evidence
of it being the Higgs boson.
The Higgs could explain data obtained by CERN scientists using the Large
Hadron Collider, but other particles could have created the data, suggesting
there might be alternate explanations for it, they say in a paper published in the journal Physical Review D.
"The current data is not precise enough to determine exactly what the
particle is," says university researcher Mads Toudal Frandsen. "It
could be a number of other known particles."
One possibility is that the CERN team was seeing a theoretical particle
dubbed the techni-higgs, he says.
