CERN stories

 
When CERN announced the discovery of a new particle last week, it was very, very careful to not explicitly call that particle the Higgs boson, instead citing "strong evidence" for the discovery of "a particle consistent with the Higgs boson." Now we know why: a new analysis suggests that CERN's data may show an "impostor" particle, and not the Higgs.
 
Nothing can travel faster than light. It's one of the fundamental constants of our universe, and as such, it's kind of a big deal. We've got a bit of an issue here, then, since scientists at CERN have just announced that they've spotted some subatomic particles blowing past the light speed barrier. Physics, we have a problem.
