The fourth man

Last week I posted a black and white photograph of three young men and a beautiful Sunbeam Alpine convertible taken in 1961 on the campus of Harvard University.

I wondered if anyone might recognise the men: two are major characters in Massive and were there right at the start of the story that culminates in the hunt for what became known as the Higgs boson.

To be a great physicist

I never met Robert Brout but on 4th June 2007 I interviewed him over a scratchy Skype line at his home in Brussels about his part in what has become the story of the Higgs boson. He was joined by Francois Englert.

Another one bites the dust

And so to the media scramble at Easter that scientists at the Large Hadron Collider had finally glimpsed the Higgs boson, or at least its fleeting footprint: a flicker of light in the giant Atlas detector.

The year of the Higgs

Things are looking good at Cern. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is back in business and for the first time, there is a real sense that major discoveries are within reach.

Waiting for the Godot particle

To get to Fermilab from downtown Chicago, you find Lake Michigan and drive in the opposite direction. After about an hour on the freeway, the city shrinks to nothing in the rear-view mirror and you pick up an access road that turns into the 7,000 acre campus where the laboratory is based.

Welcome to the blog

Hello! I'll be using this blog to write about issues relating to my book and scientific developments surrounding the Higgs particle. There are plenty of points I plan to cover, not least the history of references to God in physics - and why some are deemed acceptable and others much less so. It would be great if you were to join in with your own thoughts, and of course I welcome any views on the book.
