Has Science Found God?

I haven’t watched it, just yet, and but I will - “There could be some new force beyond the force that we know. If it is confirmed, it could point to a whole new world of interactions. “The Higgs-boson is a piece that goes into the p...

Results from Tevatron Collider Suggest Previously Undiscovered Particle or Force

Researchers at Illinois' Fermilab Tevatron are cautiously optimistic that a bump in their data may herald the discovery either a new force, such as gravity or magnetism, or a new elementary particle. And no, it doesn't seem to be the Higgs boson. A...
