Scientists at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, claim to have discovered a new particle that is consistent with the Higgs boson theory, which is believed to be crucial in the formation of the universe.
"I can confirm that a particle has been discovered that is consistent with the Higgs boson theory," said John Womersley, chief executive of Britain's Science & Technology Facilities Council, at an event in London.
The Higgs theory explains how particles in the universe join together to form mass, which make up stars, galaxies and planets and is the missing piece of the puzzle in explaining how the universe was created.
There couldn’t be a more exciting time to take your physics students to visit CERN in Geneva!
“The visit to CERN was superb for our A Level Physics students.”
