Not your average piece of news for a Tuesday. Scientists said they have narrowed down their search for the so-called God particle, or the Higgs boson, the particle believed to be the basic building block of the universe. Researchers from two independent labs associated with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Energy, based in Switzerland, said the particle is more likely to be found in lower mass or energy ranges from the massive atom smasher used to track it down. Italian physicist Fabiola Gianotti, who heads the team running one of the experiments, said there are indications of Higgs’s existence and that, with enough data, it could either be unambiguously discovered or ruled out next year.
