Higgs machine. If CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) can create Higgs bosons, a handful may appear in rare “exclusive” reactions that don’t destroy the colliding protons–similar to a reaction now observed at Fermilab. CERN’s ATLAS and CMS teams are considering adding equipment to their detectors (CMS shown here) to look for such events (click image to enlarge).
