Happening Now: Update On Search For 'God Particle'
Scientists in Switzerland are this hour reporting on "the status of their searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson" — the so-called "God Particle" that we posted about Monday.
It's thought that the Higgs gives matter mass. The search for it is one of the biggest stories in science.
The event is being webcast here.
We'll watch for the headline news. But our friends at the 13.7 blog will be in better position to explain what it all does or doesn't mean, and NPR's Nell Greenfieldboyce will have more about the news later today on All Things Considered.
