Countless neutrinos are zipping around the cosmos - and through us - all the time. An experiment in Karlsruhe is working to establish the mass of this ubiquitous elementary particle.
Neutrinos are so tiny and inconspicuous that physicists believed for a long time they had no mass. Now, a massive device that scientists say will determine the mass of neutrinos has begun operation in Karlsruhe.
They called it the God Particle and then the "elusive" one. But they found the Higgs boson in the end. And British physicist and Nobel Laureate Peter Higgs has lived to see the impact of his science.
On June 15, workers at CERN start modernizing its largest Synchrotron — the LHC. They aim to generate many more particle collisions and collect considerably more data about Higgs- and other particles.
