Hawking -vs- Higgs
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Stephen Hawking's recent quip that it might be more interesting if the Large Hadron Collider didn't find any Higgs bosons, sets the scene for the ultimate scientific showdown.Getting upset at Stephen Hawking might not sound like a smart thing for a scientist to do, but when you consider that it's Professor Peter Higgs himself you can sort of see his point.The Large Hadron Collider LHC @ CERN in Switzerland is the first particle accelerator able to access the energies necessary to reveal the Higgs particle (if it's there) or set an awful lot of people scurrying back to their blackboards (if it's not).__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
