Part 1 of the Work Well Feel Well series looks at developing an awareness of health indicators
History teaches that those who explore relentlessly and fearlessly are often the ones rewarded with the greatest prize of all: the truth.
Since its discovery in 2012, the Higgs boson has become one of the most powerful tools to probe our understanding of nature and, with that, examine some of the biggest open questions in physics today.
It was just a few short weeks in mid-2012, but they were so intense that it felt like years. As 4 July drew near, the ATLAS and CMS experiments could sense that they were homing in on something big.
On 10 September 2008, the LHC circulated its first beams. It may not have been all plain sailing from then on, but the adventure had begun.
The year 2000 was set to be the last year of running for CERN’s Large Electron–Positron (LEP) collider, and it ended dramatically
The direct discovery of the W and Z bosons at the SppS in 1983 provided solid experimental support for the existence of the Higgs boson
As the various breakthroughs of the 1970s gradually consolidated the Standard Model, the Brout–Englert–Higgs field and its boson emerged as the most promising theoretical model to explain the origin of mass
The Higgs boson holds the record (48 years) among elementary particles for the time between prediction and discovery, going from an esoteric technicality to commanding the global spotlight at the world’s most powerful collider
