On the trail of the Higgs boson
In a week when the Higgs boson has made the national news, Lancaster University's Harald Fox talks to Jim Wild about Lancaster physicists' involvement in experiments at The Large Hadron Collider, and the implications of Tuesday's announcement from CERN.
"It's not a full-blown discovery where we all stand on the table and applaud the result and say yes that was it, we can be sure that the Higgs boson exists" Harald admits - but, one way or the other, we're likely to know for sure by summer 2012.
