Why Stephen Hawking Thinks the 'God Particle' Could End the Universe By Kelly Dickerson, Staff Writer | September 08, 2014 Simulated data from the Large Hadron Collider particle detector shows the Higgs boson produced after two protons collide.Credit: CERN
Higgs particle can disintegrate into particles of dark matter, according to new model. The 'Standard Model' of particle physics successfully describes the smallest constituents of matter. But the model has its limitations – it does not explain the dark matter of the universe. Christoffer Petersson, a research scientist at Chalmers University of Technology, has found a solution. His theories are now being tested at the particle physics laboratory CERN.
