The "God Particle" or Higgs Boson particle of physics may soon be found by the huge Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Europe. This video explains it...I think.
A different astronomy and space science related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation.

Im will not be surprised if fermilab beats cern to the punch, they are real close right now.
Cool video. Thanks for posting!
didn't fermilab close down? I thought I read somewhere that... perhaps fermi continues but only Tevatron was closed down?
Fermilab is still running, just a few months ago they found more evidence of the higgs boson.
hmmm I wonder why I read something about them closing... i'll try to find the article. Do you know if Tevatron is still up and running?
Im pretty sure Tevatron closed down about a year ago. Fermilab is in the process of shutting down, not there yet though, then it will take atleast a couple of years to analyze all the data.

that was it then... sorry. Anyway. From what I understand they are close, but still not so close (if you catch my drift).
Klein, I live 15 minutes from the lab. You are thinking of the Tevatron accelarator which ran out of funding a couple years back and spent its last allocated funds a little more more than a year ago.
As i understand it, the lab is not closing, more so trying to figure out what direction to turn in the future. Neutrino study is next...and no i don't know anything on that except what i read in the paper

So they are keeping fermilab open? Good to hear.
