Jun 26, 2014
The publication Scientific American quotes Professor Rick Cavanaugh about ongoing experiments to characterize the Higgs boson, commenting on the excitement over the particle’s discovery and what it may mean for the future of particle physics. Discovered at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, the Higgs boson particle’s detection could mean major changes in the Standard Model, including the behavior of dark matter, with which the Higgs boson could interact. In the article, Professor Cavanaugh states that it’s an exciting time to be a scientist: “I wake up in the morning with goose bumps because of where we are”.
