‘God par­ti­cle’ find on cards


Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A TOP nu­clear sci­en­tist has con­firmed there is strong ev­i­dence for the ex­is­tence of the Higgs Bo­son – or “God par­ti­cle”.

Although this doesn’t mean a “full sci­en­tific dis­cov­ery”, it is still enough for re­searchers at CERN’S Large Hadron Col­lider (LHC)TO pre­dict a dis­cov­ery next year.

Two sep­a­rate teams of sci­en­tists have been run­ning se­cret independent ex­per­i­ments, with one now claim­ing they’ve found signs of the Higgs Bo­son in the past year.

Pro­fes­sor Ste­fan Sold­ner-rem­bold, a par­ti­cle physi­cist from the Univer­sity of Manch­ester, said: “I am very ex­cited about this, since the qual­ity of the LHC re­sults is ex­cep­tional.’
