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.

Researchers at Cern, home of the Large Hadron Collider, have held 38 antihydrogen atoms in place, each for a fraction of a second.

The team, reporting in Nature, says the ability to study such antimatter atoms will allow previously impossible […]
