Rochester’s Connection to Higgs Boson Research
Scientists at the University of Rochester played a role in the research that led to the probable discovery of the Higgs boson.
The recent announcement that captured the attention of the scientific community is a significant step in understanding our universe.
On July 4, 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva announced the discovery of a new particle that is “consistent with the Higgs boson,” believed to be responsible for giving other particles their mass.
U of R Physics Professors Carl Hagen, Regina Demina, and Arie Bodek appeared at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday on WXXI’s 1370 Connection with Bob Smith to discuss the discovery and the Rochester connection to the research.
