You can't see the Higgs boson, but you can watch its discovery. Scientists crowd around dozens of monitors as they collect data from experiments using a looping 17-mile underground tunnel and equipment likened to a five-story Swiss watch. They worry what the media might say if tests fail, and wonder whether the experiment should have been conducted in secret. And they clamor for a seat in the auditorium where physicists will present their findings in the hunt for the elusive "God particle," a subatomic building block that existed only in theory, but had never been detected.

Britain's Peter Higgs and Francois Englert of Belgium won the Nobel Prize for physics on Tuesday for predicting the existence of the Higgs boson particle, which explains how elementary matter attained the mass to form stars and planets. The insight has been hailed as one of the most important in the understanding of the cosmos. Without the Higgs mechanism, all particles would travel at the speed of light and atoms would not exist. Half a century after the scientists' original prediction, the new building block of nature was finally detected in 2012 at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)

Western Maryland senior co-captain Ken Higgs knew there would come a day when he would have to carry much of the burden of leading the Green Terrors' lacrosse team.In previous years, the Westminster High grad watched and learned from the likes of '92 grad Clark Hospelhorn and '93 grad Joe Furnari.On a roster dominated with underclassmen (10 freshmen and six sophomores), it's now his turn to be watched and learned from. It's a role that took Higgs some time to get used to."When I first went into the season I knew there would be pressure on me being the only returning senior on the offensive end," Higgs said.

While most participants start at an early age, Tom Higgs did not get into drag racing until later in life. But once he made that first trip down the quarter-mile stretch, he was hooked.They say life begins at 40. In Higgs' case it was three years later at 43. That's when he made his first run down the quarter-mile drag strip. Now, five years later, Higgs is still going strong.Higgs had never been around drag racing until his friend Joe Bounds of Woodstock convinced him to go with him to the track one weekend.

Along with many of the nation's million and a half professors, I saw the recent apparent discovery of the Higgs boson particle as a great moment not only for science but for American education as well. Somehow, lost in the discussion of the discovery and the cost of the facility at which it took place, we managed to miss the real action that unveiled the Higgs: persons nurtured, selected, and paid to think. By universities. As our nation continues to endure a prolonged economic struggle, the cost of higher education has become a focus for many because the price of attendance has outpaced inflation consistently and significantly.

Breakthrough: Scientists at Europe's CERN research center found evidence of a new subatomic particle thought to be the Higgs boson, known popularly as the "God particle. " Researchers: Thousands of scientists around the world collaborated; locally, researchers from the University of Maryland College Park and Johns Hopkins University were involved. Description: Scientists observed trillions of collisions of protons, with what Hopkins assistant professor Andrei Gritsan called the equivalent of 16,000 digital cameras watching and recording.

Researchers from Hopkins and Maryland are among thousands of scientists engaged in the hunt for the Higgs boson, known popularly as the "God particle. " Proof of its existence would answer fundamental questions about the nature of our existence. Physicists and graduate students in Baltimore and College Park watched live updates Tuesday from one of the greatest scientific sleuthing expeditions of our time. The news, from Geneva: Data that researchers from Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland have helped to analyze might have provided a glimpse of the first signs of the elusive Higgs boson — but stay tuned for more definitive results next year.

GREENBELT - A Laurel man convicted of ordering the execution-style killings of three Washington women became the first person from Maryland sentenced to death in the federal court system. Dustin John Higgs, 28, did not react as the jury foreman read the sentence aloud yesterday in U.S. District Court here. Members of the victims' families, who filled the courtroom, silently nodded and wept at the close of the case which has stretched on for almost four years. "The community obviously feels your grief and, in some small way, the community shares your pain," Judge Peter J. Messitte told the victims' relatives.
