New Evidence of Ultrarare Process Could Explain Dark Matter

Scientists at CERN have reported finding evidence for a process previously predicted by theory. The ultra-rare process could lead to new physics regarding particle processes, explaining dark matter and answering cosmological questions.

Could A Techni-Particle Save Us from the Universe’s Undoing?

In the preface to a new book entitled “Starmus”, published last month, Cambridge cosmologist Stephen Hawking said that if indeed the particle is the Higgs Boson, then CERN’s discovery could lead to the demise of the universe if its contents were to become unstable. But a new research analysis published this month in the journal Physical Review D, says that Hawking and the rest of the universe may need not fear, because the particle may in fact not be what it appears.
