Avoiding the Nefarious NapStealers – The “God” Particle Discovered

Large Hadron Collider

We don’t know for sure because CERN officials are downplaying it, but there are rumors that researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may have discovered the “God” particle they have been searching for, efficaciously avoiding the Nefarious NapStealers in their pursuit of scientific fact. However, there has been no official word, so we won’t know for sure until the results have been verified and the studies have been published.

What do you think? Have they found it? If so, what do you think the ramifications will be?

  1. Been to a talk on Paicle Physics and Large Hadron Collider. Excellent, but my head now hus…

  2. All of which leads me to ask: once they’ve found the ‘God Paicle’, what will they do with the large hadron collider?

  3. If your only tool is a Large Hadron Collider, every problem looks like a potential sub-atomic paicle

  4.  Summarize 1-28-11
    Hi guys I hope you like my summary.Maniac was sleeping on cabin trying to be dead but be dead yet.While he is in the cabin two boys came there names were Russell and Piper.Maniac told them they want pizza because he untied Cobbles knot.Then Maniac  find out that there big brother was big John McNab Maniac knew he was in trouble .Then Piper told Maniac there going after the east end that was bad.Till then bye bye.

  5. Summary of Maniac Magee
    My favorite of Maniac Magee is chapter 7 when Maniac hit the frog ball.McNab pitch the ball at a ball with  legs?Maniac was scared.So he hit with the tip of the bat.Big John McNab got mad trying to get Maniac out.McNab got the frog ball.Throwing the ball to hit the bass but miss,then charring to do it over again.McNab keep missing Maniac again and again.Maniac maned a home run.He a legend.McNab was so mad,he got   everybody but Maniac Magee.So when it was all over Maniac Magee ran off.Why I like this is because we meet BIG JOHN MCNAB!

    not ironic at all actually. The LHC was built for the purpose of testing theories and hypotheses like string theory and the higgs boson. The goal is not to prove or disprove any specific theory. but for advancing our understanding of the laws of nature and the universe.

  7. An update on the 2.1-sigma MSSM Higgs signal « A Quantum Diaries Survivor says:

    How do you know that you are able to infer a true Higgs field, (rather than some other fundamental field of the Standard Model), from the production of characteristic and reactions that are predicted by the standard model to occur up to that point, anyway? I believe in the Standard Model up to the Higgs boson, and then not absolutely sure how to interpret what generaly relativity says about the field with and without a Higgs boson, but I also naively see room for question if the Higgs directly observed. How do we know that pair of W bosons come right out of a field that produce a Higgs?

    Tommaso, I also see what saying about the “embarassing rate of W and Z events”, making direct observation that much more likely, though, right.?

  8. In a national Events guide it has Ben Goldacre in London, discussing Bad Science, this coming Thursday evening.
    If his message to last meeting is anything to go by then be in a fighting shape as comparably good as Darren for it.
    Something to look forward to.

    Elsewhere, in a Cumbrian newspaper on the same evening, we have:
    Young Farmers Association (YFA) are continuing their week-long annual Hay Festival,
    (the more twine the merrier!) it cheerfully adds.

    And, also, on the Events page is:

    yeah, the queues were majorly huge to get into the tunnels. and because we grasp quite early enough that we had to queue to get a ticket which gave entry at a time, and decided to watch whatshisname – 2003 nobel – conference first, we got to the queue for tickets just after they had closed the queue. which was very frustrating.

    i just talked with a friend who was in the last group to get admitted to the ATLAS experiment. soo jealous!

  11. bunt roern says:

    …isn’t it mainly non-scientists who have an exaggerated respect for science as being a collection of ultimate truths (“It’s a scientific fact / It’s a scientific fact / It’s got to be accurate, it’s got to be exact…”) that is the essence of “scientism” and scientists who know much better how tentative and doubtful it all is?

    I really like that.

    I tried “Day” by AL Kennedy and abandoned it, but I abandoned her as an author – I will try another. I saw her talk about it at the Hay Festival and quite liked her laid back style. I also saw her show “Words” on the Edinburgh fringe last year and really liked it. I think she does not appeal to some people at all though. In our family, younger son and I enjoyed the show immensely, whereas husband and older son fell asleep.

  17. the higgs boson is a temporary of photonic origin that is the direct result of a photon collapsing on itself to give rise to fusion type reactions the faster the photon collapses directly influences the state of fusion that occurs a boson is the initiator of all fusion reactions but however is so temporary it cannot be sustained longer than the reaction takes to complete so is extremely elusive but it is the bridging between matter and antimatter

  18. I would agree with the earlier poster that we need to see more from Indian scientists. The name of the blog “Materialia Indica” suggests that it is there for discussions on metallurgical and materials scene in India or related to Indians. Occasional mention of interesting work around the world is fine but it should not end up becoming a norm.

  19. Then you would just love what the Army is doing at one base in Germany. This base is slated for closure in 2008, and they just began work on a handicap ramp for the post library. heard that the cost is 20,000 euros.

    unofficially known for a few years that this post was closing, and official word came in 2007. Only now do they want to build a handicap ramp.

    Is absurd the right word here?

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began an investigation of the 2003 and 2004 Infiniti M45 late last year over inaccurate fuel gauge readings, and now that probe has resulted in an official recall. The culprit has been identified as a faulty circuit board that causes the gauge to register more fuel in the tank than the car actually has.

    According to NHTSA, Infiniti will begin notifying owners in mid-April, at which time they can take their sedans to the dealer to be replaced free of charge. Follow the jump for the official word from NHTSA with more details.

  27. Trickledown, I suggest you read up on string theory and the higgs field/higgs boson. The big bang is beleived to have been caused by one string surface with no higgs field coming into contact with a surface that had one. The recently operational super collider at CERN should be able to find the Higgs Boson relatively quickly and help to give us a better understanding of the universe before the big bang.

    Super Symmetry is a popular theory physicists like to play with. Since only a fraction of the universes mass can be accounted for, the theory supposes the remaining mass is found in “dark matter” This dark matter is substance, but not in an apparent physical form. What exactly is this “dark matter”?
    I keep putting quotes around “dark matter”, because I hope no one thinks, oooh star trek.
    If had equal and opposite invisible the combined matter or combined mass of the invisible opposing would be the remaining “missing” matter, and the label for this missing matter is dark matter.

    Regarding benefits….
    As I just mentioned in another post… After the sign of the deal, india ended its isolation and within days signed 2 pacts… one to get uranium (which we never had) and the other to get technology (4 reactors).

  49. Hmmm what I think ?

    I think the Higgs boson is there by force of experimental evidence.

    seen nothing measured at recent colliders (LEP, LEP II, HERA, Tevatron) against the bare Standard Model. And the measurements at LEP by themselves already _need_ a Higgs boson, or they would be really inconsistent with our understanding of radiative corrections.

    In other words, I think Chris Hill might be right, but still, nature always has it its own way. If one single Higgs boson is dumb, that is ok, it does not make Nature dumb. Rather, we might be just not understanding what telling us. I think statement does not make a theory with five higgses more appealing to me.

    Hello michael,

    the constraint is due to the searches performed by electron-positron collisions at LEP II. The associated ZH production was expected by running the machine at a total energy exceeding M_z + M_h , roughly. They did not see it, so they set a limit. The limit is very stringent: although it says “we exclude a SM higgs boson if its mass is below 114.4 GeV, at 95% confidence level”, the probability they can have missed it if its mass is 112 GeV is about zero. That is because of the steep behavior of their probability of observing the as a function of the mass.

    Sorry, but physicists are not saying that the Higgs boson is not a creator of anything. Just because some have nick-named it the “god does not mean that it has any relation to a “creator.” If it does exist, it is intimately involved in giving objects mass. Even if found, there are Higgs boson-less models that would seem to be more valid.

    As a microbiologist and having a large interest in astrophysics, I am confused by your that recent advances have given credence to intelligent design. If anything, the opposite is true. I am also not too sure which of the books you are referring in your bibliography. You seem to be referencing religious (not scientific) material.

    The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books takes place on Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29 on the gorgeous UCLA campus in west L.A. This festival is one of the–if not THE–top U.S. book festival. About 140,000 people attend, there are more than 300 authors, 325 booths, 100 panels and presentations and books galone. And all free (except for an $8 charge for parking). The people who organize this do a fantastic job. This is–if possible–not to be missed, and one of my favorite events of the year.

    Authors: Jonathan L. Feng, Ze’ev Surujon, Hai-Bo Yu Recent indications of a 125 GeV Higgs boson are challenging for gauge-mediated supersymmetry breaking (GMSB), since radiative contributions to the Higgs boson mass are not enhanced by significant stop mixing. This challenge should not be considered in isolation, however, as GMSB also generically suffers from two other problems: unsuppressed electric dipole moments and the absence of an attractive dark matter candidate. We show that all of these problems may be simultaneously solved by considering heavy without extra fields or modified cosmology. Multi-TeV sfermions suppress the EDMs and raise the Higgs mass, and the dark matter problem is solved by Goldilocks cosmology, in which TeV neutralinos decay to GeV gravitinos that are simultaneously light enough to solve the flavor problem and heavy enough to be all of dark matter. The implications for collider searches and direct and indirect dark matter detection are…

    In view of the LHC upgrade phases towards HL-LHC the ATLAS experiment plans to upgrade the Inner Detector with an all silicon system. The n-in-p silicon technology is a promising candidate for the pixel upgrade thanks to its radiation hardness and cost effectiveness, that allow for enlarging the area instrumented with pixel detectors. We present the characterization and performance of novel n-in-p planar pixel sensors produced by CiS (Germany) connected by bump bonding to the ATLAS readout chip FE-I3. These results are obtained before and after irradiation up to a fluence of 10^16 1-MeV n_eq/cm^2, and prove the operability of this kind of sensors in the harsh radiation environment foreseen for the pixel system at HL-LHC. We also present an overview of the new pixel production, which is on-going at CiS for sensors compatible with the new ATLAS readout chip FE-I4.
