But if they exist in two places at the same time, will they ever get sent or received? Best sent recorded delivery I think!

They might be entangled. Prof.Zeilinger and his collaborators have established a teleportation over 143 km in the Canary Islands.

Speaking about Higgs Boson, I just read this =)

Have they actually found this Higgs Boson or not?

ASPEN, Colo. — Signaling a likely end to one of the longest, most expensive searches in the history of science, physicists said Wednesday that they had discovered a new subatomic particle that looks for all the world like the Higgs boson, a key to understanding why there is diversity and life in the universe.

I think so http://havewefoundthehiggsbosonyet.org/ :)

Let's wait for the Nobel prize announcement. Maybe I should get a minimal part of it, since I am running simulations of LHC proton-proton collisions in the Test4Theory@home BOINC project.

Nobel prize to David Wineland of NIST and George Haroche of College de France for their study of single particles interaction. I am waiting for further explanations.
No Higgs boson prized then.

Tullio,
Its always a few years before anyone gets a Nobel prize. I think they like to leave a time delay of a few years just to let the dust settle and make sure the results are solid.

Funny thing about the Higgs Boson. Who do you give the award to?
Does Peter Higgs get it? Its named after him, but its the work of thousands!

There are thousands of scientists working in CERN. To be honest, i don't think any one man should be given credit for it. The discovery is the work of thousands of people over 40 years. It would be unfair to credit one man or one single small group.

John.

The Nobel prize is given to no more than three people. There are cases when a person was left out because of this. I know at least three Italian scientists who deserved it and did not get it: Giuseppe Occhialini, Tullio Regge and Nicola Cabibbo.

From what I could gather, Haroche and Wineland handled qubits, which are the basis of quantum cryptography and quantum computers.
I would have included Anton Zeilinger from Vienna, just not to be nationalistic.

Update:


“Higgs” boson may not open door to exotic realms

At Kyoto the relator of the LHCb projects has said that in the LHC data there is no sign of neutralinos and other massive particles foreseen by the supersymmetry theory, also called SUSY. This has been confirmed by Roberto Battiston who was one of the organizers of a meeting at Geneva on space and physics.The other organizer was Sergio Bertolucci, scientific director of CERN.

Yes, but there is a huge amount of data to analyze. The LHC produced 600 million events (collisions) per second and each one of them can be analyzed. We at Test4Theory@home are helping in this process by producing simulated events to which the real data can be compared by CERN computers. This helps the analysis.

Maybe, but this is the exciting bit to look forward too!

The machine ran at particle energies of 8 trillion electron-volts (teraelectronvolts; TeV) in 2012, up from the prior high point of 7TeV in 2011.
But when the shutdown concludes, slated for the end of November 2014, it should be set to run at 14TeV - far and away the highest-energy collisions ever attempted by scientists.

At the moment: I believe it is quantum loop gravity that is the most promising.

But LHC is not looking for gravitons. At most for the particles foreseen by supersymmetry (SUSY) which are lacking in today's data. I doubt very much that they exist.

"Bolderdash! Matter is clearly stringy."
Besides, quantum lukewarm gravity is better.
