Can the future affect the past? What you do today could affect what happened yesterday – that is the bizarre conclusion of a thought experiment in quantum physics described in a preprint article by Yakir Aharonov of Tel-Aviv University in Israel and colleagues.

Why do we need Higg’s Boson? Helen Heath explains why the Standard Model needs the Higgs boson. http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/multimedia/50419 Gordon Fraser and Michael Riordan argue that the boson discovered at CERN should be known not as the Higgs boson, but the “higgson” Read more at http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/print/2012/jul/04/introducing-the-higgson Related articles How does Higg’s Boson transfer mass?
CERN officials have announced an extraordinary scientific seminar to be held at CERN on 4 July, the eve of this year’s major particle-physics conference, ICHEP, in Melbourne. So, it is expected that CERN might announce an official “discovery” of the Higgs boson next week. An interview with Higgs published by CERN also adds to this expectation. In the interview, Higgs opposes the particle […]
Salfronz asks: “When they talk about finding a particle like the Higgs boson, and looking in certain energy levels, does this really mean that the particle is that equivalent mass? It seems like at the energy levels they’re looking at that these particles would be easily detectable if they actually had the mass to correlate […]
