Particle puts physics on agenda
PHYSICS fever is expected to grip the world's media and science community in the wake of today's announcement at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research.
Physicists there are expected to say with strong confidence they have discovered the elusive Higgs boson particle — just a day after US scientists indicated the same.
Finding the particle, first proposed by Peter Higgs in 1964, would prove the existence of the Higgs Field, a mysterious force which interacts with particles to give them their mass. The Higgs boson is the most sought-after prize in particle physics.
Professor Higgs himself is speaking at Swansea University on Thursday, July 12 as part of a four-day physics conference.
