Find the next Higgs boson
The particle collisions in the LHC accelerator appear as lines in a circle. Find the lines that could be an indication of the next Higgs boson.
FIND LINES: The Higgs boson is an elementary particle that provides atoms with mass. The particle's existence has been predicted theoretically, but it has only been observed twice, so physicists are still searching for it in the LHC particle accelerator. There, protons and atomic nuclei collide at speeds close to that of light, so they are smashed into elementary particles. When charged particles affect the electrons of the surrounding atoms, it is registered in the ATLAS detector, which draws the particle paths as lines in a circle. Most lines radiate from the centre, but the problem is to find the lines that apparear at the sides. The off-centre vertices show that an uncharged particle decayed into a charged particle, perhaps indicating a Higgs boson.. GET STARTED: www.higgshunters.org
Lines on the periphery might indicate a Higgs boson. The detector registers particle collisions. The paths of charged particles are shown as lines from the centre.
