New evidence strengthens the case that scientists have discovered a Higgs boson, or "God particle." The new particle discovered at experiments at the Large Hadron Collider last summer is looking more like a Higgs boson than ever before.
Researcher Kyle Cranmer says, "When we discovered the particle, we knew we found something significant. Now, we’re just trying to establish the properties."
On July 4, physicists announced the discovery of a particle with a close resemblance to a Higgs, a particle thought to give mass to other elementary particles. The discovery of such a particle could finish a job almost five decades in the making.
